Newly designed for 2013, this paddle still has a deep and wide blade with lots of surface area to move large amounts of water while running deep enough to be an effective rudder. The Badger Tail is also great for prying strokes.

Based on a traditional beavertail, this paddle is a time proven design and favorite. By redistributing the volume of the blade, we have created a smoother paddling experience.

With the bulk of the blade’s volume pulling in the deeper, more still waters – instead of higher up where the water is bubbling and gurgling from your stroke – the paddler’s energy is conserved. The improved BadgerTail paddle now makes for a much more fluid stroke.

Wood Types: Ash, Cherry – sometimes Walnut or other specialty woods are available

This paddle belongs to the Badger Paws category.

The Paw paddles are more stout than the Claw paddles. They are designed for digging and pulling lots of water as well as heavy wear and tear or larger vessels. The edges of these paddles are a little beefier yet can also be ordered with a sharper blade edge like The Claw paddles.
