Rated 5 out of 5 by TrueSpirit from Best Paddle I've Ever Owned This is the paddle I've been looking for all my life. Seriously! It is so much easier to do J-strokes, sweeps, etc. with this paddle than with the more square-shaped paddles such as the Arrow. Not that I don't like the Arrow, as I own one of these, too. You do sacrifice a bit of efficiency with the Beavertail as there is less wood in the water as there is with the Arrow. I would take an Arrow with me, as well, if I wanted to cover a lot of distance quickly. The paddle is very lightweight, beautiful and well finished. My wife wanted one as soon as she tried mine, so it looks like I'll be buying another.

Rated 4 out of 5 by BabulusPiscans from Nice Paddle I've had this paddle for about two years. I paddle with it almost everyday from May to September. A nice light paddle for flat-water. It has a lot of flex and is good for solo paddling. When the wind picks up I will use a stiffer paddle but this one is by far my favorite. The only drawback is that there are less coats of finish on this paddle than on the arrow. It will need to be refinished sooner. Still, for the price, this is a great paddle. Just awesome for lakes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DeadMuleJohn from It's a paddle Well, don't really know much I can say about a canoe paddle - it works if I do, looks good, fits well, probably tastes terrible and really not much of a fashion statement. I was going to take it out for dinner but the wife said "no". If you just need a paddle I highly recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by fishercat1 from wisconsin made beavertail paddles This wood paddle is the only way to go for excellent quality. Craftmanship rules--light, durable, smooth finished, and able to propel my 18 ft. laker with a two passenger combined weight load that reaches 480lbs with ease. These paddles really can pull the water. Construction is superb and with tips protective coated 'pushing off' no longer means shredding the paddle ends.

Rated 5 out of 5 by mikegra from very nice paddle This paddle is very comfortable in the hands, glides through the water smooth and quietly, and allows great control. The width of it is great when you need to dig in on those windy days. I bought one for my wife and me and we both think they're great

Rated 5 out of 5 by TxHornyToad from Nice Solo Paddle I have serveral wider paddles but now that I have a Bell solo conoe I wanted something with a long narrow blade to learn the more difficult strokes for solo paddling. Paddle is a very nice Bending Branches brand wood paddle with a protective synthetic tip. Nice and light and works well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Paddling from As Advertised I am very pleased with my recent purchase of a Beavertail Canoe Paddle from Bean. As always when purchasing from Bean, the product was shipped promptly and was as advertised. The paddle is well made, balances well, and is attractive. Due to challenging autumn weather here in northern PA, I have only had opportunity to use the paddle once. I paddled a 17' tandem canoe solo. The paddle was comfortable and effective. I enjoyed using it. I look forward to using the paddle with my 14' solo canoe, hopefully this weekend.
