Featuring an iconic blade modeled after the shape of a beaver’s tail, The Guide paddle is matched by a long, tapered grip for a balanced feel in your hand. Elegant lines crafted from a single piece of wood make for a paddle that looks as good out of the water as it feels in it. Each stroke from this paddle moves easily through the water providing just what’s needed; whether you’re paddling across a calm, sheet of glass or into the face of gale force winds. A hand-rubbed, oil finish provides a butter smooth feel that’s easy to maintain for years to come.
I purchased my Merrimack paddle about three years ago. I wanted to inject some style into my Quetico and BWCA canoe trips and I loved the lines of your paddle. What has surprised me most about this paddle is how comfortable it is. It just fits into my hands and I never experience wrist fatigue. (I have carpal tunnel syndrome.) You make a great product and this paddle is as pleasant to use as it is to look at. Thank you!
