Ratings & Reviews
Upgraded from a cheap paddle
When I started kayaking, I made the mistake of buying a cheap paddle with the thought that I would save money. The cheaper paddle got me by but once I upgraded to a premium kayak, I wanted to upgrade to a premium paddle too. The Bending Branches is by far lighter and not aluminium like my old one. The blade has a hook carved in that way you can use it to retrieve lures. I've probably saved over $50 worth of lures this year from trees and snags by just running the paddle blade on my line and freeing them up. I went with the 240cm-255cm. When I am in the low position on my Bonafide SS127, I typically keep the length at 240cm, but when I am in the high position, I keep my paddle about 250cm that way I am not hitting the side of my kayak and I get the most out of each stroke. I was a little hesitant on the price but I was not buying another cheap paddle and figured for an extra $50 more than a the regular Angler Ace, I now have a paddle that will fit me in just about any kayak now.
