Whitewater Canoe Paddle or Canoe Paddle Whitewater

The Bending Branches Explorer Plus, this is the wooden canoe paddle that you really want! This is suitable for most aspects of Canadian Canoeing; exploring, touring, tripping and also whitewater canoeing

Bending Branches have designed the Explorer Plus to feature an 18 layer laminated basswood paddle shaft. The laminated shaft gives greater levels of stiffness for selected paddle strokes and added performance. This canoe paddle shaft is then finished off with a freestyle palm grip. The paddle blade is made from a mixture of basswood and roasted basswood. It then incorporates two differnt levels of protection to maximise durability. The first layer of protection is the 4 oz fiberglass coating on both sides of the paddle blade. This will also add some extra stiffness and also help to protect the wood. The second level of protection is the full rockgard warp. This is the solid edge around the blade that protects against rock jabbing and enhance the durabiltiy of the edge of the blade.
