That's a nice looking peel. I would think that would be pretty lightweight and easy to work with.
I have a wood one similar to what's pictured below, and I really like it. I use it for rotating my pies, and taking them out. It's not big enough to prep on. I tried to get a larger size, but the 16" peel did not have a true 16" prep surface. I would have had to get a much larger one. Compared to the one I have, the quality of the wood on the larger ones was garbage, and they were all warped. Many of them, the wood was still wet. I ended up getting a more expensive American Metalcraft wood peel. The quality is superb, but it's so stinkin heavy. I can work with it now, but I'm still on the hunt for something that is lightweight. I prefer wood, but I'm open to other materials.
