A quiet, peaceful, lightweight, and fantastic looking paddle! It is best suited for freestyle canoeing, light touring, even long distance when using a rapid stroke rate. It has slightly more surface area than the Ottertail and Beavertail giving it more thrust with each stroke. Choose this paddle if you like a versatile paddle for deep water canoeing or river tripping. Has the added advantage of water rolling off the blade before dripping into the canoe. Finished with varnish and a wax buffing. Copper tip by request only.
Due to the nature of our lumber selection each paddle is very unique, large knots, nail holes, discoloration, and rot are all part of our lumber and we strive to showcase the uniqueness of each board. So please keep that in mind when ordering, if that makes you uncomfortable feel free to contact us and we can text a photograph for your approval prior to shipping. None of the so-called "defects" will adversly affect the paddles strength or characteristics.
