I bought two of these paddles in bent shaft. They arrived quickly, packaged securely in good protective wrap in a stapled box. Shipping of course was free, can't beat that price! They also had the best price to be found. The paddles themselves are beautiful. Finish is smooth and warm. The palm grip fits perfectly and is very comfortable with no rough spots or pressure points. The bent shaft still allows for the necessary strokes in flat and mild river waters. Best of all, we have improved our efficiency with these versus straight shaft paddles. The black willow is light and strong and I have had no issues with durability so far. Great paddle/1
I paddle a single person Old Town Pack canoe and absolutely love this paddle. It really lets you get the J-stroke going well. To appreciate this paddle you need to use it. There is no way to fully describe the joy.
