Bending Branches Navigator Kayak Paddle Reviews:


So light

A great beautiful paddle, and yes WOOD! This paddle is worth every penny. The wood just pops right out of the water as you finish your stroke. This is a huge energy saver if you paddle for more than 60 minutes. We have 3 different brands and this is my go to on long paddles. It has very good power, however I get much more power out of my carbon blade. But again I wasn't going for power only on this one. I have had this paddle for more than a year and not one issue.

Heavily paddle

This paddle seems to be a perfect match to my Placidboats Spitfire solo canoe. Not only is it a joy to paddle with it, its combination of carbon fiber shaft and finely crafted wooden paddles matches the canoe's beautiful design features. Lower paddle faces are protected with a fiberglass strip that should help ensure long paddle life. Best of all, paddle was $30 cheaper at Campmor than any other place I could find it.

navigator paddle

nice paddle, but campmor doesn't know how to package it. had to reseal the tips, because they were damaged alittle. too much trouble to send back. purchase the same item for my wife, . paddle is not good for deep power strokes, but sweeping, touring strokes.

Prettiest paddle I've ever seen

I saw one of these with a kayak that was for sale. It was beautiful. After flapping around with a cheap plastic paddle I finally did the right thing and got one of these.

Just admiring its beauty, I feel as it I'm paddling better.
