Bending Branches Angler

Why choose Bending Branches for your next kayak fishing paddle? Here's some simple, straightforward reasons why.

Great paddle!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Light weight and fast. I opted for a longer length as I have a Jackson "Big Rig" and it's a wide kayak. I would reccomend this paddle.

What length did you end up going with? I have the 240 Angler Pro, and find it a little short with seats in the high position.

Choosing the right paddle for a long day out on the water searching for the catch of the day is just as important to the kayak angler as the kayak itself. A heavy paddle can leave you sore and exhausted while a broken one can leave you wishing you remained an empty handed shore angler. I chose the B.B. Angler ACE after finding a series of informational videos online about Bending Branches and their products, as well as a helpful size chart. I chose this paddle based on the lightweight material and features the Angler ACE offers at this price range. As a big and tall angler with a wider than most kayak, a longer paddle was definitely needed. Therefore, I much appreciate the length varieties in Bending Branches paddles.. This paddle has been durable enough to push me off of hard rock lake bottoms and jagged red rock canyon walls of Arizona without damaging the blade. Even if I find myself snagged, utilizing the hook retrieval system, more often than being hooked up reaching for the built in tape measure, having a paddle that allows me to effortlessly cover distance through any type of terrain has made kayak fishing the adventure its meant to be. I would recommend this paddle for any skill level kayak angler.

This paddle is awesome! I love how little this paddle weighs. After many miles, you want a paddle like this on your side.

The measuring tool is great, because sometimes those ruler stickers the DNR gives you come off your boat.
