    The Sunburst is a really great paddle. It has a powerful blade and a full on carbon shaft - it feels really light even at the end of the day. I use it on flatwater and for fishing in gentle streams but some people I know use it in more aggressive white water. I highly recommend this paddle for users who paddle the distance and can benefit from the weight savings.

    This paddle is awesome! I was hesitant to buy it, but really glad I did. It is feather light @ 17 ounces to minimize fatigue. The big blade provides plenty of power when needed. The palm grip handle is very comfortable and more user friendly for me.

    Great paddle. Super light weight. I got the XL paddle expecting a minimal power increase but I severely underestimated the advantage it gave me in canoe racing!

    In my preparation for a couple canoe races, I did some serious research on which paddles my racing partner and I wanted to invest in. 300 miles over 4 days in the central Texas heat lends itself to taking every advantage you can over the competitors and the elements. The Bending Branches canoe paddles were by far the best we found for our specific needs! I received the pair of paddles three days after ordering!!! Talk about fast delivery and great customer service.

    I purchased this paddle just over a year ago, I have about 800 miles on it now and thought I would give my thoughts. I paddle A Kruger Sea Wind and do alot of expidition paddling. I am not a racer but we do cover aolt of miles a day. The ergonomics of the paddle are great. I can paddle for 16 hours easily with this design and shape. Its very comfortable and when needed I can put the power down. The grip is very comfortable and I have never got a blister from it. I love the texture of the shaft. It doesnt get slippery when wet. I can maintain a good grip in the rain no problem. The downside I am seeing is I have already wore through the clearcoat on the end of the blade. The rockguard seems to be holding up okay, but the coating on the wood that meets the rock guard towards the end is gone. I just got back from a 5 day trip and noticed it. I will have to let it dry out good and reseal it with something or its going to end up breaking. Over all a good paddle. I would recomend to anyone who paddles moderate distances on fairly easy rivers. If you put away some miles, paddle tough rivers, or paddle upstream alot, its probably not the best choice.
