  The Black Bart is not a large FS blade
  Posted by: canoeist11 on Dec-21-12 11:59 AM (EST)

The bottom line is that with my extra (unfortunate) body weight,I found I needed a paddle surface area to afford a little more grab to move me and the boat along. A big FS blade would kill me for general touring stuff. The Black Bart is my everyday all purpose blade, and my guess is that the surface area is about 10-12% more than that on the Zav.
