Kudos to Bending Branches new 'AMP" SUP Paddle as B.B. really hit the ball outta-the-park! Exquisitely designed, the 'AMP' perfectly represents BB's attention to detail in their pursuit of perfection! Stronger and lighter than most SUP Paddles currently available the AMP offers SUP Paddlers the best of both worlds: Great value & stunning great looks as their Red Alder/ Black Willow blade integrated into a T-700 Carbon shaft is… Wow!
After seeing them I put on a wet suit and headed for the lake with my board. The AMP is a great paddle. The adjustment system is perfect with no play; it feels like a one piece shaft no matter what adjustment I use. I am nursing some shoulder tendinitis and changing the length to non typical allowed me to ease the strain, a benefit worth mentioning as there are a lot of sore shoulders, elbows and wrists out there. The blade size and shape feel very good in the water allowing all strokes and braces to work without any flutter or diving and the swing weight is right on. The texture of the T700 shaft are very nice. I paddled SUP with your Wave hound last year; the size and weight of the AMP are a big improvement.
This is a ridiculous price for any paddle. I would suggest making your own. They are not that hard to make.
