This is no run-of-the-woodshop paddle. It’s the most hands-on, handcrafted paddle we’ve ever made, for people who treasure life’s finer things.
It's many special features in include:
Double-bend design and ovalized shaft that make every stroke more comfortable, more efficient.
Special ergonomically angled grip that aligns with your wrist and forearm, providing added comfort.
The rich hue and feather-light weight of the first paddle made with roasted basswood. Roasting the wood makes it ultra light.
Rich, sueded-cloth blade pouch, with Bending Branches embroidering and a Velcro® tab to hold the pouch snugly in place during transport.

Bending Branches’ Limited Edition paddle is a functional performance paddle with the fit and finish of fine furniture.
While many methods exist, a simple and accurate way is to measure your torso. Sit up straight on a flat surface and measure from the surface in between your legs to your nose. Follow the chart below:
An easy way to measure in the field is to place the grip of the paddle between your legs (while sitting) and mark where the shoulder is (where blade meets shaft). The shoulder on a straight shaft should be at your forehead; the shoulder on a bent shaft should be at your nose. Note: this is only a guideline to sizing. Seat height, style of paddling, and arm length can all effect the size you need. Demo paddling is always recommended.
I was out looking for a new paddle last year with no intention of buying anything fancy. When I saw this paddle at the outfitters, I immediately fell in love and knew that I had to get it. First, it's a piece of art. It would look just as good hanging on the wall in your living room as it does paddling pristine lakes and rivers. Second, its beauty is not at the expense of its function (in fact, quite the opposite). The double bend shaft fits perfectly into your hands and your paddle stroke feels perfect every time. By far, my favourite paddle. Thanks so much to the folks at Bending Branches!!! :)
So, how much is it? Is it still available? I would very much like one. It is stunning. I need a new paddle =]
I just received my new Limited Edition and all I can say is: Wow! Now my quandary is "do I use it or display it?" It truly is a thing of beauty and a piece of art! Thank you!
Can you make the search a little easier for me and just tell me where I can buy one.
Only found Austin Kayak sells them online and only 52 and 54"
