Bamboo makes a better paddle! Built tough but light enough for a long day of paddling. Our hand-sanded shafts are made from kiln-dried Calcutta bamboo with an incredible strength-to-weight ratio and an ideal medium/stiff flex that's easy on your body. Bamboo fibers run the entire length of the shaft, yielding a natural flex that seamlessly transfers your energy to the water with an optimum responsiveness, making braces, draws and other strokes easy and efficient. Choose from 3 fiberglass blade colors or carbon at any length.
