Great review, I love my 2021 Lima L (I’m 75kg) although I’ve only just got the ‘super handle’ for it – it was incorrectly supplied with the old style handle and Starboard had run out. Huge credit to Starboard for adjusting their area measurement – perhaps because I’d emailed them about this and shared their reply with you and you subsequently featured the discrepancies in measurements between brands? Who knows?! 🙂 I think I still prefer the look of the 2021 even if it doesn’t paddle quite so well… The ribs just look a bit too plastic-y for me 😀

One other thing I really like about Starboard carbon paddles is the textured shaft which makes for a really firm grip without the ‘sandpaper’ effect you get from some appliqué grips – and the oval option is great if you have larger hands.

Thanks for the great video and review, Reuben!
The 2022 vs. 2021 paddle sizes also confused me at first. Many thanks for the clarification. Living in Germany, I have to wait 3 more weeks to get my 2022 Lima. Analogues to the 2020 and 2021 models I ordered it in L (80kg) but in the meantime I have the feeling that I should order a XL as well.

Feedback on the Starboard ‘super handle’ – I mentioned I’ve only just been sent it so have been using my Lima 2021 with the previous handle design and only just started using the new handle… So whilst it feels less immediately comfortable in the hand – it is larger and less ‘sculpted’ – it hasn’t given me any blisters which I have previously always got from the other handle (and my QuickBlade handle). So thumbs up from me!
