Bending Branches



This is a paddle that's so cool it defies description.  Maybe's cool.

Bending Branches-Beavertail
Availability:Ships from manufacturer
FLAT-RATE GROUND SHIPPING ONLY (please allow 5-7 business days for shipping & handling)



The Beavertail is a great choice for deep water paddling with its classic long and narrow blade. This traditional design with a symmetrical palm grip is strong and durable as well as beautiful. The blade has five laminates of black willow and cherry, and the patented Rockgard protects the blade tip.
A lot of us think this paddle is such a good value, and the shorter lengths are good go-to paddles for smaller folks who need a smaller blade, or for the youth transitioning into an adult size paddle.


  • Blade size: 6.75" x 25"
  • Blade: Black Willow and Cherry
  • Shaft: Solid Black Willow
  • Rockgard color: Caramel

Bending Branches Beaverrail --- WOW rating
I have worked in artisan woodworking and found the Beavertails that I already own to be excellent. They are amazingly light. show good joinery, well finished and have been a joy in use. Don't hesitate, you will love them. MikeB
