Doug, I have a Tailwind Evening paddle from BB, but got one of the last models prior to the modification. When I checked with my outfitter they said not to be upset as a lot of water gets past the notch - especially if the blades are feathered.

The reason I got a Tailwind is it's strength. It is heavy - 42oz at 240cm, but is built with 12 laminates. I've been using it exclusively and have built up quite a set of shoulders as a result. Would I use it on a LONG trip on quiet water? Probably not. Would I use it in battle? You betcha.
