If you work a single blade skills, your overall efficiency will improve with that mode too. I gave up on the double with my RapidFire in short order because I so much prefer to use a single. I only bought a double because that was at the time recommended by Joe for the average Joe. But I guess I did not want to be an average Joe when it comes to paddling. There's not much in wind or waves worth going out in that I can't get through very well with my single blade. I'll give it to you that with a double you can speed along a couple of tenths mph faster, but at the cost of giving up enjoyable flexible maneuverability and putting up with drips.
