    I purchased a Bending Branches Sun Shadow a couple weeks ago, and find it to be a significant upgrade from the entry level Mohawk I've used the past few years. The oval shaft fits well in the hands and the balance is excellent. Noticed no tendency to flutter, and it moves my kayak smoothly in both rivers and flat water lakes. Fit and finish on the components is very good.

    I have had a couple of these in my paddle collection for the past few years. They are some of the prettiest of stock paddles, but still tough enough for the rocky rivers we paddle. The tip protector on one of the paddles came loose this year, but it was an easy repair.

    I just wanted to give you some positive feedback. My husband has just opened the Wood Sun Shadow Paddle as a birthday gift. The paddle is a real piece of art. Beautiful craftsmanship and we are very, very impressed. Your service was excellent and the product exquisite! We will definitely order from you again!
