Got this paddle in the XL Straight Shaft version, and give it 5 stars. As the other reviewer said, the handle is perfect, the palm swell is a bit larger than than my other BB paddles, fits well in the hand. The weight is great, going to a BB Arrow Paddle seems like you're carrying a 5lb weight after this. I like the look of the paddle also, personally. It gives a lot of power, but is deceptive due to a slight shaft flex so you don't feel as if you're working as hard. The outer pattern of the shaft gives a good grip also.
ACK, I received the sunburst xl paddle as a gift from my sister. I first saw the paddle at jersey paddler and loved the look and feel of it. So far so good. I am switching from a ZRE 12' bent shaft which I have used exclusively for about 8 years. Surprisingly, I have felt no weight increase at all, no fatigue and the transition to my new paddle was pretty smooth. I am having to adjust to how long it feels. I am 5'8 and it is a 52" paddle. The rivers are shallow here in California and I am scraping bottom a lot. Nicely balanced paddle and the palm grip is perfect.
