Perfectly shaped paddle for effectively reaching all curves, sides and between toes. I love that the abrasive surface covers the entire bottom half of the paddle. My main concern though is that after just a few uses, the abrasive surface started to chip and flake off. It seems to have been painted on, which i think is an advantage over the glued on abrasive strips, but in this case, the adhesive in the abrasive coating does not seem very durable. Large parts of the abrasive surface have now come off the paddle, after just 6-10 uses (revealing the nicely contoured wood underneath). If this aspect of the product could be improved, then I would definitely rate 5 stars, and be a regular purchaser! Due to the flaking and chipping off of the abrasive surface though, I cannot recommend it. Such a paddle should last at least a few months, if not a year before needing to be replaced. In this case, mine started chipping after just a few weeks.
