Post Assembly: (Very easy to assemble I might add)
New paddle size vs old paddle size: (with my hand comparison)
Overall, I love the ergonomic hand contour design. The hand strap fits nicely and does not cause any hand cramping. Although I love the contour, the size is a bit excessive for my smaller hand. I've used these for the past 2 weeks but have only pulled 200-300meters with them. After a few hundred meters, I starting to feel a little too much upper trap and shoulder cramping. Great product for anyone with a larger hand size with no history of shoulder problems. I wish there was an in-between size available for this product. Please feel free to contact me if you have any additional questions about this product. Thank you Aqua Gear for the opportunity to do this review!
