The Bending Branches Whisper kayak paddle is a premier paddle designed with beginners in mind. Rugged and light, the Whisper will allow you to grow your kayaking skills. The Whisper paddle features dihedral curves and asymmetrical power faces to help keep blade flutter to a minimum. The Whisper’s low profile will help eliminate wind resistance and lower the overall swing weight to reduce paddler fatigue. The Bending Branches Whisper kayak paddle is and all-purpose paddle, so you can enjoy it in any paddling conditions.
I give the Bending Branches Whisper kayak paddle a rating of 4 out of 5 stars. The Whisper is a very decent all-purpose kayak paddle, and will serve an entry level kayaker very well. Unfortunately, I found it to be a little flimsy when putting it through the toughest riggers of the day. However, under common circumstances the Whisper kayak paddle performed as well as one could expect, considering the price. If you’re looking for a reliable paddle for kids or beginners, the Whisper is a good option. The Whisper would also make an excellent backup paddle, since it features an all-purpose design.
With the Bending Branches Whisper kayak paddle’s low price of around $50, it’s hard not to consider it when choosing a kayak paddle. While it may not be right for an experienced kayaker like me, it is still an excellent paddle and I would be happy to use for an afternoon paddle if it was available. Not too bad for an “economy” aluminum kayak paddle.
