Coach, I am about to put together a new paddle.  I'm using Nitaku Fastarc S1 1.8mm, and Flyatt soft 2mm.  I'm using an old blade, Butterfly Firehand that I used in college oh so many years ago 1978.  My question, the blade has some small gouges from removing really old rubber, and its not quite totally flat.  Weight is 85.  Am I just being nostalgic?  Should I use a newer blade?  Currently I'm using Mark V and Sriver on a cheap Stiga blade.  

Looking forward to learning from you.

Hi Larry,

I would give the old blade a go.  The blades don't really wear out.  They tend to get slightly softer and slower but not a lot.
