It is a symmetrical oval shape 5 3/4" wide in the middle. I considered it more of a beaver tail than an otter tail, but perhaps it is somewhere in the middle between the two shapes. What ever it should be called it seems well made and functional. The finish had some runs but when the time comes to refinish it they will be removed. I may indeed have used the wrong term in describing it.
Like someone else suggested I would take a belt sander to Glen's paddle and reshape it. No big deal to knock off some weight, thin the edges, and reshape the profile if so desired.
