Rated 5 out of 5 by Rpdjack Paddle is a piece of art
This paddle is almost too nice to put into the water. It should be mounted on the wall for all to see and admire. However, it is also a great paddle. Light as a feather and easy to use to maneuver the canoe. Great stern paddle (60" version).

A work of art. Absolutely beautiful, laminated real wood construction. So much lighter than my old paddles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TrueSpirit Best Paddle I've Ever Owned
This is the paddle I've been looking for all my life. Seriously! It is so much easier to do J-strokes, sweeps, etc. with this paddle than with the more square-shaped paddles such as the Arrow. Not that I don't like the Arrow, as I own one of these, too. You do sacrifice a bit of efficiency with the Beavertail as there is less wood in the water as there is with the Arrow. I would take an Arrow with me, as well, if I wanted to cover a lot of distance quickly.
The paddle is very lightweight, beautiful and well finished. My wife wanted one as soon as she tried mine, so it looks like I'll be buying another.

This canoe paddle is well made, comes in different lengths, and is of high quality. It is both functional and decorative. Highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TxHornyToad Nice Solo Paddle
I have serveral wider paddles but now that I have a Bell solo conoe I wanted something with a long narrow blade to learn the more difficult strokes for solo paddling. Paddle is a very nice Bending Branches brand wood paddle with a protective synthetic tip. Nice and light and works well.

I have used this paddle on quiet and quick water. It feels nice in my hand, is light and seems to aid in paddling efficiency. I gave it a four star rating because I do no have anything to compare it with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DeadMuleJohn It's a paddle
Well, don't really know much I can say about a canoe paddle - it works if I do, looks good, fits well, probably tastes terrible and really not much of a fashion statement. I was going to take it out for dinner but the wife said "no". If you just need a paddle I highly recommend it.

I was surprised how lightweight the paddle is, and the finish is superb. Too bad there is ice on the lake at the moment!
