Been watching too many Kevin Callan YouTube. Wanted to try what he uses; Badgertail and Tripper.I have my dad's 70 year old Old Town cherry beavertail. So the style has been around for awhile. Beautiful paddle. Shaft is kind of squarish, not really an oval or round. A bit clunky. Maybe just mine? Feels good in my hand. The blade is robust, still has an edge thickness. It doesn't come to a feathered edge like the old one. Oiled cherry is beautiful. Sock is classy. Hard to find Badger oil. Rutebaga only USA shop to ship Badgers. Great, fast, fair priced shipping.

The workmanship, fit and finish is outstanding. Slight dihedral on the blade. Reasonable weight. Mine was turned out to be the oii finish option, which I prefer, but the varnish/oil option was not specified on the webpage. Super service and shipping as usual.

Shipping and service was spot on. The Badger Tail Cherry Paddle was very well made. If this paddle had a edge protector on it that would make it perfect. Using this paddle for solo canoeing.
Again, great service from Rutabaga
