This paddle is the same as 517 but has a longer tongue. It has a better sting when applied. Very similar to a slapper as the ends are separated, but the V notch at the end when you hit with just the tips can give a bite.
Features made with 7/8 oz leather two layers for the end and 4 layers for the handle. The tongue end is pre softened leather that is dyed oxblood red then fades into a black handle which is bonded and sewn tight.
