This paddle is identified as extremely smooth and quiet for such a powerful blade. This is Badger’s version of a traditional beavertail style paddle, but in our case we call it a BadgerTail. It is a popular paddle for its versatility and power.
The blade is very similar in overall volume to Badgers popular Tripper model. But because the BadgerTail has its volume distributed lower in the blade, leverage is increased and so is power. Another benefit to having more volume in the lower section of the blade is that if you end up in shallow water you will be able to get more of the blade into the water to better propel the canoe.
Badger’s signature hand shaped transitional ridge (between the shaft and blade) allows for a strong backbone traveling well into the paddle blade. This transitional ridge gradually tapers into the blade allowing for uniform flex towards the center. The ridge also creates a smooth flow of water around the blade on the surface allowing for a more smooth and fluid stroke.
Includes a Badger Paddle Sock for transport and storage.
