The BB Special is the one of Bending Branches most popular paddles for recreational canoeists looking to take the next step in their paddling. The BB Special is hand-crafted of a blend of beautiful hardwoods – basswood, red alder, and maple - in Osceola, Wisconsin. Its seven-laminate blade provides strength and durability, and the blade tip is edged with Bending Branches’ Rockgard® protection.
The BB Special is a bent shaft paddle and as such makes for an incredibly smooth paddling experience on flat and gentle sections of water.
Bending Branches' Rockgard protection is a proprietary technology - derived from the same material as inline skate wheels - that maintains the integrity of the paddle, seals against moisture and protects the most vulnerable areas - the tips and edges. It is this unmatched shock-absorption that Rockgard provides which helps Bending Branches wood paddles last six times longer than those without protection.
The BB Special paddle is available in 2-inch increments
