          Comments about BENDING BRANCHES Whisper Paddle:

          After doing far more research and learning more than I ever wanted to about kayak paddles, I finally settled on these. From what little definitive information I could find (most everyone just reports the weights that manufacturers claim, without independent measurement), these seemed like the best option without spending over $100 on a paddle. I was really torn between this paddle and some of the $100+ paddles but I figured if nothing else this will make a solid backup paddle.

          I'm happy to report that this paddle is light enough that the weight is a non-issue even when paddling for 5+ hours. It's aluminum so it's plenty stiff, and the plastic ferring adds rigidity and strength where the two halves join together so hopefully it will remain nice and tight fitting for years to come.
          The blades seem to be plenty durable, I've pushed off of rocks and even used them to push off the bottom of the river and lift up my kayak when I got stuck on a cypress knee, and they've held up just fine.
          This paddle does float.
          I do sometimes wish the blades had more "bite" - a bigger, more aggressive surface area would be welcome on accasions when I am trying to get somewhere quickly or fight a strong current upstream, but that's just a nice to have, it hasn't actually been a problem and it's impossible to find something of this quality with a more aggressive paddle size anywhere near this price range anyway. This works well for high and low angle paddling.

          One minor annoyance is that the bar diameter is a little bit on the small side. It still fits comfortably in the hand but my Yak Grips don't like to stay in place.
