The Rockgard blade edge is excellent and the grip and shaft are comfortable. The blade surfaces are flat (I wish they were slightly cambered). The 2 oz fiberglass on the blade seems good enough vs the 4 oz fiberglass on some of the other BB paddles. BB claims that this is their lightest all-wood paddle and that the 54" paddle weighs 19 oz +/- 10%. Mine weighs 18 oz, so their claim seems to be accurate. The grip shape is freestyle (i.e symmetrical, not offset). The quality is very high.
