Which weight fiberglass

    I have two old paddles, very basic and not expensive, I was going to do a basic refinish on them. Then I thought perhaps I'll wrap the blades in fiberglass. I already have some fabric from some other projects, but I am concerned it may be a bit heavy for paddles. What weight, weave or density (or whatever they call it) would be best for paddle application?

    I use very lightweight cloth, when I glass paddles... I think it's 0.5 or 0.75oz.

    2 oz is good.
