neutral  Refugio: I think paleta is more like a sports paddle (e.g. ping pong). The paddle used for beating fraternity pledges is much larger and thicker, though shaped similarly. I don't know the translation, though.

  -> I don´t know either, Ruth, but paleta sounds like a good enough word for me, regardless of size and thickness
