With a modern carbon shaft, handcrafted wooden blade and efficient 11° bend, the featherweight Bending Branches Sunburst 11 canoe paddle grants you all-day paddling with minimal fatigue.


  • 11° bend means less energy with each stroke, giving you extra endurance
  • Asymmetrical 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.
