Default What Mash Paddle do you use?

I need to buy a new one -- what do you use? Any recommendations?

Made my own out of a piece of maple. You can customize it however you want. But I have seen oars and 9 irons used, so be creative and you will not have to by anything.

I have a 42" stainless paddle with about eleven 1" holes drilled in it for brewing 10 gallons.

I use the same 22" stainless steel spoon that I use for stirring my kettle. One less item to clean up.

I use that cheap plastic paddle you see in every HBS.

Works fine for me for my 5 gal batches.
