it was a quite heated discussion some time ago, and yes, I'm using them all the time, no matter of wind coz using only one bar from 7m to 12m. My PB is ~10m 7secs on Woo 1, flat water, which probably is 14m on Woo2, or 16 on Woo3
Sure, I'm 58-59kg, makes a complete sense to me simply because I'm light. I would argue all riders up to 65kg can only benefit from it, providing taking a good care of them. I do change them after 2 years, or about 200-300 sessions, depending on a season.
100kg rider is not the same as 60kg or less. It really is how much we pulling
Not that much, or how long is a piece of string (rhetorical question)....
