Bending Branches Navigator Plus Kayak Paddle - With the Navigator Plus telescoping wood kayak Paddle by Bending Branches, beauty is in the hands of the beholder. Rich-looking red alder and roasted basswood blades flex more than composite paddles, reducing shoulder and arm fatigue. The lightweight carbon shaft gives you great responsiveness and durability. Proprietary Rockguard protection starts at the tip and wraps around the leading edge. Each blade is also reinforced with fiberglass, providing durability not seen in most lightweight paddles. The Plus telescoping ferrule allows you to adjust your paddle to any degree of feather angle, lengthen or shorten your paddle a span of 15 centimeters, and eliminates wobble. It allows the Navigator Plus to break down for transport and storage. Combine beauty with unsurpassed fit, finish and durability with the Bending Branches Navigator Plus wood kayak paddle.
