Bending Branches Whisper

Very durable and reliable. nNo complaints at all. Great first paddle, but it is all any kayaker could ever need.
- Isn't very cool looking
- Not very good grip
It's a workhorse. It's that simple. I have not had a single problem with it thus far and I have been kayaking and fishing the local creeks and rivers and can say that it makes a great small creek paddle as well.
No bends or dents after being put through the wringer for the last 6 months. I have even used it as a shovel on more than one occasion to dig holes for going to the bathroom and building fire pits.
No bells and whistles but it gets it all done in good fashion.
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
Perfect for the beginner, this entry-level model incorporates many of the features usually found only on more advanced models. Nearly silent blade shape enters and exits water cleanly. Carefully engineered lightweight, injection-molded nylon and fiberglass blade design helps you paddle longer with less fatigue. Dihedral curve and asymmetrical power face eliminate blade flutter; thin and low-profile to reduce wind resistance. Blade surface area is distributed evenly for a balanced feel, uniform pull and minimal roll. Lightweight, strong aluminum shaft has 3M Versafit(TM) over the oval grip area for comfortable and confident hand control. Composite ferrule is extremely light and strong; tested to ensure great fit, feathering angle, breakdown ease and joint tightness. Feathering is adjustable to 0 or 60 degrees, with left or right hand control. Comes with heavy-duty rubber drip rings.
This entry-level paddle boasts features usually found only on expensive models: a composite ferrule that won't seize up in sand or salt water, a high-performance Dream blade shape, and 3M Versafit grips.
