Score: 4.9. This paddle is beautiful, lightweight and strong. After a few minutes of use it felt like an old friend. I was a bit disappointed in the bumpy varnish finish. For that I deduct 0.1 point.
Used them a couple of times and loved them. Only owned cheap feather weights and these are 100x better. Really not that much more if you are going to use them a couple times a year.
