This is a custom made paddle and some say it references the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, Inc. It reads, "Eyes Front, Head High...To The Finish" on the back side. This paddle is 35" long and is a whopping 1.1" thick. The last picture shows how thick it is compared to other crap you find on the internet. The letters are carved into the wood. The first two pictures show the carved wording that's on the back of the paddle. The third picture is the front of the paddle and has the greek letters Omega Psi Phi carved into it. The third picture shows how thick it is compared to that crap you find in greek stores with the glued on letters. These paddles are for home decorative use and memorabilia, and are not intended for any other purposes. Check seller feedback and happy bidding.
