The smaller blades are easier on my body and the bent shaft is better for my wrists. I was afraid a smaller blade wouldn't get me enough leverage for my rolls but it actually makes it easier for set-ups. Not real keen on the all black color so I added some bright tape to the shaft to make it more visible. Overall, I'm pleased with my purchase.
