The Bending Branches Glide Glass kayak paddle features a fiberglass shaft. This means less weight and more comfort than aluminum, all with a touring shaped blade. Paddling will seem effortless using a fiberglass shaft.

A reasonable paddle for the money. Fairly light and stiff, with robust blades that resist damage. The only "feature" you should be aware of is that the shaft is made up of spiral wound, smooth fibre glass and this can be slippery with wet hands. Overlaying some tape helps.
This is a great paddle for the money - I like the BB products - the whisper dream, the kids splash, the sunrise, the glide - I think they are well designed paddles at a decent price - have worked well for my kayak rental
