This paddle provides enough power to paddle upstream on my home river, the lower MO River and offers plenty of control. Although not as light as some ZRE paddles, the Sunburst 14 is the lightest, most efficient paddle that I have ever used, highly recommended if you are in the market for a premium bent shaft.
In short, I believe that BB has hit another home run with this particular paddle. I can't wait to try the Sunburst 14 XL, which will provide even more power on those upriver jaunts that I have become fond of. In addition, BB customer service is outstanding, always willing to answer questions and offer help. 10 out of 10!
My friends and I are sold on these beautiful, light weight paddles for trips up north. I highly recommend the Bending Branches Sunburst paddles!
I just can't believe how such a thin piece of wood can be so unbelievably strong. I loaned one of mine to a foolish (but like able) friend. He's no lightweight and a bit clubby, I thought I might have a heart-attack when I noticed that he had laid the Sunburst down on the grass and was unknowingly standing right on the middle of the blade. He and I carefully looked at the blade and there were no cracks not the slightest damage.
I have contacted Bending Branches with minor questions from time to time and their customer Service representatives could not have been more kind and helpful. Even had their customer service lead answer the phone once and Margaret was just super.
They do repair work and I've had them even replace a blade. The cost was unbelievably minimal I would have spent more to have repaired it Myself. The paddle was returned and I could absolutely not tell it from new.
You just can't go wrong with bending Branches. You won't be sorry.
