I live in an RV full time and a paddle strop just fits better then a hanging strop. I recently got a razor that was honed with a taped spine and the paddle just doesn't seem to be doing any good on the edge. The razor is a restored wedge and has a pretty sizable bevel I am just learning to hone and don't want to mess with this razor at this time so I guess a new hanging strop is in order. I'm guessing they work fine on taped razors as they have more give to contact the edge and because I don't hear much about this problem. It's just going to be tight in here for stropping.
