With a modern carbon shaft and a striking, handcrafted wooden blade, the featherweight Bending Branches Sunburst ST canoe paddle grants you all-day paddling with minimal fatigue.

  • Features

    • Symmetrical Palm/T-grip blend is designed for optimal comfort on your hands and joints, ideal for control strokes
    • Paddle weighs just 17 oz. due to savings from combination of modern carbon technology and classic wood construction
    • Ovalized, T-700 carbon shaft is strong and lightweight; classic wooden blade is buoyant and efficient, gracefully lifting every stroke from the water with ease
    • Rockgard® protection provides excellent shock absorption, making the paddle last 6 times longer than one without protection
    • 2 oz. fiberglass wrap over the blade protects against nicks and dents, safeguarding it for years to come
    • "Feather" pattern on the blade is made from strips of basswood, red alder and dark roasted basswood
    • The "Sugar Island" blade shape is designed for smooth flatwater entry and exit—ideal for most canoeists
    • Handcrafted in Osceola, Wisconsin

    Made in USA.
