Blade: Red Alder, Basswood and Maple, 18 Laminate Basswood Shaft
The fit an finish is also something to brag about. When not actually on the water, I keep it wrapped in a denim bag made from an old pair of blue jeans. After 15 years of pretty hard use, it still looks like new! The tip end is protected by a heavy duty rock guard which is great. You can't go wrong with a Bending Branches Bent shaft paddle!
It does compliment my quiver but I don't always take it out with me. I would use this paddle on lakes and ponds but prefer the straight shaft or double blade for rivers and moving water.
