Bending Branches Espresso Plus 14 Bent-Shaft Paddle

Bending Branches Espresso Plus 14 Bent-Shaft Paddle

Product Description

Bending Branches blended beauty and performance to come up with the Espresso Plus 14 Bent-Shaft canoe paddle! Fourteen-degree bend places the blade nearly vertical in the water at the end of the stroke, so you pull your boat cleanly through the water. Seven-laminate black willow blade provides a powerful stroke for excellent flatwater cruising performance. Rockgard protects the paddle blade, wrapping around the corners onto the blade edges. Ergonomically designed contour grip and ovalized shaft provide hours of paddling comfort. Multiple-step varnishing process extends life of paddle.

For the price and weight, the espresso plus has been great on the water at home. The extra ounces make the carbon/Kevlar paddles feel like air in th BW.

I absolutely LOVE my BB Espresso Plus 14 Bent-Shaft Paddle. Never once did I have blisters on my hands or feel uncomfortable. Bravo Bending Branches!

Great paddle. Comfortable to hold, paddles well and is durable. I heard it was being discontinued. If that is the case, Sanborn makes a couple very similar paddles which are just a tad lighter.
