More power isn’t always what you want. Sometimes less is more.  This paddle is designed with a smaller blade and slighter bend than most bent-shaft paddles. Enjoy hours of blissful smooth paddling. But don’t be fooled into thinking this paddle won’t get you where you want to go. It still has plenty of get-up-and-go.

Not just cedar. Enjoy the added strength and durability of a striking hardwood ash blade tip and gorgeous cherry sandwiching the shaft length.
