Has a nice texture that helped to keep a secure grip, even in the pouring down rain. I gave it an 8 b/c it doesn't move as much water as I thought it would. If I could I'd send it back and get the Slice for a little more power. Also, the adjustment procedure takes some getting used to, and it came loose 2 or 3 times on our 23 mile river trip. This could be due to the fact that it was my first time using it. Time will tell.
Overall I'm happy with this paddle and my wife will probably end up with it when I upgrade. The length adjust-ability is worth the extra price.
