    Smile Grey Owl River Paddle

    This is a lovely paddle, it is great for distance work on flat to moderate rivers, it is longer in the blade than most recreational paddles and is quite narrow as a result. I find it really efficient and it is a kind of modified beavertail i guess you could say.
    I think it is a really attractive light paddle that I have paddled hundreds of miles with without complaint. Great value for money. just a great paddle in my opinion.

    The greay owl website says:
    Laminated ash and bass shaft with cherry pear grip; cherry, butternut, and bass blade. Longer and narrower than others in the line. Very durable; an excellent all-around paddle for wilderness tripping.

    I could not agree more, does not have the most traditional of shapes but a brilliant paddle

    I have a tripper paddle, it is a joy to use.
    Nothing beats a nice bit of wood.

    I have a tripper paddle too. It makes a difference using a wooden paddle

    I would choose, the "Hammerhead," E, as most similar to what experienced river paddlers use in the States. The freestyle carbon paddle is interesting, too, though I can't tell what sort of edge reinforcement it has.
