Finally getting around to building my first GP. I've borrowed a few, and then a few months back bought an Aleutian-style paddle from a friend who had made it. He made it into a 2-piece by utilizing one of those metal push-button paddle ferrules. I like the idea of a 2-piece for a variety of reasons: 1. easy to stow in vehicle, as a back-up paddle, etc. 2. Can easily add drip rings.
What are forums members thoughts on one-piece vs 2-piece GPs?
