  • NEW ITEM
    Paulownia is substituted for the red cedar in the shaft and blade. Overall paddle weight is reduced by approximately 2 oz. Paulownia is a very light weight, blond colored wood, originally grown in the orient.  It is now being grown as a sustainable crop in small plantations in the US. I've been lucky to obtain a small supply of this wonderful wood.

    In order to maintain adequate stiffness in the shaft, a fiberglass reinforcing layer is laminated between the core and each of the hardwood faces. The result is a shaft as stiff as or a bit stiffer than our standard. - Add $40.00
