My first GP was a laminated Friday Harbor with a combination tung oil and varnish finish. The feel was wonderful, like a baby's bottom with really good grip. But a season of use wore the finish through quickly especially at the tips, so I reluctantly sanded them down and refinished both ends past the loom with straight marine varnish. The combo finish makes the grip really nice on the loom so I left it that way.

My two other wood paddles have varnish on the whole surface and the grip is not as sure. And it sure ain't as purty.
