What's in a Bending Branches Paddle?

Our wood paddles are constructed from a strategic collaboration of woods from the softwood families including:
Black Willow
Soft Maple
Red Alder

Basswood and Black Willow wood is both light and quite strong. These woods make up a large percentage of our paddle's construction.
Soft Maple and Red Alder are harder, more dense woods and are primarily used along the paddle edge to provide some additional strength while not adding too much weight to the paddle.
Butternut is much like the Basswood in it's properties and is used along with the other woods to enhance the cosmetic appearance of the paddle.

We take great pride in designing our paddles and that passion results in a paddle that we feel leads the industry in both beauty and performance.
