I have 8 paddles altogether: Euros, a wing, and three GP's (two Novorca carbon paddles and my now 6 month old Lumpy in WRC). The Lumpy is lighter than the Novorcas, and lighter than my carbon Euros. Beautifully made, no flutter. Bill gave me excellent advice to first measure my grip on the other paddles in order to get a perfect loom length. The Lumpy design of a very subtle shoulder is even better than the shoulderless looms of my Novorcas. I highly recommend working with Bill to get your perfect greenland paddle.
