I have 2 BB specials, a Performer and a Crusier Plus. All are excellent paddles that are very well finished. For the money I don't think there is a paddle that can compete with the BB special. The durability is excellent I (and friends) have used all of them over the course of 5 years. I have only had to refinish one paddle. I use them mostly for paddling in the boundary waters and the St. Croix River. The performer has a large grip witch I really like and in my opinion is worth the extra money as is the glass coated cruiser plus for those really hard on their paddles. You can't go wrong with these paddles. I gave a 9 only because I believe nothing is perfect, but these paddles are close.
