Decent Paddle Deal

There have been multiple posts lately about choosing a paddle. I and others have suggested trying to buy a quality paddle and search for a good deal. It doesn’t seem as easy to find that deal these days with prices going crazy, so I thought I’d share this one. My wife paddles with the 210 cm bent shaft version of this paddle and it’s pretty darned good. If a 220 cm straight shaft checks your boxes this is worth a look for ~$165. Please post up if you all see any decent deals.

Spending that much I’d buy a Werner

Variety is good. Which one would you buy in that price range? Got a link for folks looking?

Used a Bending Branches Whisper for years, can’t beat it for the money. Better than some paddles that are twice the price.

You lost me at “aluminum shaft”. And then on the link I saw 37oz.

No thanks.


With the sale price, it sounds like a good deal, but it’s hard to judge without seeing and trying it. The Werner paddles in the same price range are much heavier.

Best paddle value by far until buying a paddle in the MSRP $180 range. Then a reliable spare for newer paddlers after that first paddle upgrade into the better Werner paddles.
