I'm torn between the 25 or 26x12 7 paddle skats and the 26x12.5 12 paddle staggered gliders. Either way I go will be on the Red Label 8" Douglas wheel. I have read all the articles on sand paddles here and hit up some folks on here as well for their opinions. I know some guys on here were to race at Glamis recently but haven't seen anything more on that.
I will be going with the buffs up front. The 26 inch rear paddles seem to get the rollout pretty close, so you don't bind and break sh!t when you are in 4 wd.
