I was reluctant to take 71 on my big 14x27 touring board until I discovered that it works a treat....

I see what you did here. You thought we won't notice the new board if you mask it in comment about a paddle.
Very sneaky Luc ;)

As for the paddle, I'll wait for a 76 before getting interested. Based on the specs and some feedback, this paddle suppose to deliver more power than the V Drive at a smaller size due to the higher aspect of the blade and the increased streamlined power pocket. V Drive 81 was already too big for my taste so UV at 82 is not going to make things better.
in progress...

Well it is a little bit like cheese and wine. You always need more wine to finish your cheese and more cheese to finish your wine......

I tried a couple of times the new Blackfish Viento paddle and while 520cm2 or 80 sqi it felt really nice. At 360 grams it did not feel like a paddle that big.
