Bending Branches BB Special Bent Shaft Canoe Paddle Reviews:


Bent shaft with extra rock/wear guard

Bought these to replace bent shaft with wear to the edge of the paddle. Am hoping that the rock guards further up the sides will allow the paddles to last longer. When you wear the finish of a wood paddle water will destroy it. If you have a aluminium and plastic paddle these are a real upgrade. Light weight and bent shaft mean you go father with less effort. Wide short blade works well in shallow water wear you can not get a beaver tail all the way in the water. NOT for those that use a "J" stroke. Get the straight shaft version for that.

Beautifully Bent

I bought this for my father but decided to keep it and perhaps buy him one at a later date. It is nice, light and seems pretty durable. The grip fits well. It is a nice looking paddle with a good finish. I love paddling with a bent shaft, you really get a lot of drive from your paddle stroke. I would recommend this one for it good looks and fair price.

Really Nice Paddle

Probably the best value in bent-shaft paddles out there. I bought this for a BWCA trip and it worked great. It feels great in your hands and is very durable. I like the resin tip feature. I also bought a Bending Branches Arrow paddle for my teenage son for the front. If I had to do it over again, I probably would have bought two of the bent ones.

Perfect Paddle

Very light - my 11 year old loved it. Used it on a 8 mile trip down the Missouri river. High quality of finishing. Greatly improves paddling efficiency. And it's beautiful to look at! Best price I could find was from Campmor.

Coaching Novice Outrigger canoe paddling, I have purchased several of these as they are a good value and durable. I prefer having paddlers learning with a good wood paddle, rather than those plastic and aluminum shaft ones.

Worth every penny!

Light weight, very well constructed. The urethane tip guard wraps up the side of the blade farther than other paddle makers .

i would buy this product again

I gave it 4 only because the top coat is choppy and blochy.
