Other than the T-grip issues the paddles perform well, however I believe the WW II is 6oz or more heavier than spec's say.. Just giving my honest review, no sour grapes. With mods, they do the job for me.
The performance is great! For a few hours of paddling, it compares well to the all carbon paddles I have used. My rating is based on how I felt at the end of a few hours of paddling, and I felt a yearning for the next time. The ergo grip is a winner!
Big pluses for me are the aesthetics of the wood/carbon combo, and the ergo grip comfort. Very smooth throughout.
Dale and Bev communicate very well with customers and are a pleasure to do business with. FoxWorx paddles are a good deal at a fair price.
