However, very heavy gearing will decrease muscular efficiency, because the handle speed will decrease and that makes the muscles work in a slow staticlike fashion. An increase of the blade area is also limited because a wider blade takes more time and requires more effort for entry and extraction from the water. A very long blade is also inefficient, because it can create counter-movement effect on the backside of the blade. Also, the blade efficiency is affected by the velocity of the boat and it is higher in faster (bigger) boat types.
