Fiberglass VS foam core paddles

So what are the benefits (if any) to having a foam core paddle, are there any down sides?

Foam core blades have a lot more buoyancy, so the paddle is effectively weightless when the blade is in the water. I've had no durability issues with my AT2 for three years now, but I only play with it and use a BS Sidekick for creeking. Buy a quality paddle and you'll be pleased regardless of the blade core.
