The paddle is a “cosmetic second”, meaning the entire paddle is 100% structurally sound, but the finish will have slight cosmetic imperfections. All paddle components (shaft, blades, and ferrule) are standard, first quality parts that meet or surpass all benchmark testing. Standard imperfections can primarily be found in the blades and could include porosity, streaking, scratches, or inconsistencies in the laminated finish.

Cosmetic Second FAQs

Old-school Bending Branches beauty in a beefed-up paddle that meets the needs of the modern-day kayak angler.

  • The lightest fishing paddle available is perfect for anglers who appreciate a lightweight and efficient paddle 
  • A 100% carbon shaft and multi-laminate carbon blades provide a smooth, powerful stroke
  • Versatile telescoping ferrule allows for multiple feathering angles and paddle lengths
  • The wood blades on the Angler Navigator are also known for their durability and quietness. The dense, dark woods selected are known for holding form and staying in-tact. In terms of sound, there’s not a quieter entry and exit than these blades.
  • Wooden blades provide one of the easiest, more forgiving forward strokes in paddles. The natural buoyancy springs the paddle out of the water and the wood absorbs the rigors of the river or lake, providing an enjoyable paddling experience. Compared to composite or plastic blades, wood blades are going to be more flexible.
  • The blades are wrapped with Rockgard® tip projection and coated with 2 oz. fiberglass. Both seal in the wood and project it from abuse and long-term wear.
  • 105 sq. inch blade it the ideal size for horsepower and control with the heavily loaded fishing kayaks. It’s slightly bigger than some fishing paddles, but the larger size means it can handle trickier conditions and more weight.
  • 100% carbon shaft is the lightest material available, so paddling is less fatiguing and more enjoyable on longer trips. The carbon weave is tight and secure, making it one of the strongest options available.
  • The shaft is ovalized where the hands go for more comfort and control, and to limit the chances for blisters.
  • Snap-button ferrule is fixed length plus tight fitting, secure, and long-lasting. No wobbling or inefficiencies like commodity systems. It’s not as technical as some modern ferrule systems, but one of the more robust options. Comes with 3-hole for adjustable feather angles of 0° or 60°, left or right hand control.
  • Carbon ferrule insert is light, tight, and right for the long haul. This is a sizable upgrade over plastic or glass ferrule inserts.
  • 40-inch tape measure on shaft is a sizing guide, allowing you to verify catches on the spot 
  • Proudly hand built in Osceola, Wisconsin, USA, by a team of paddlers and outdoor enthusiasts.
