Badger Paddles Sliver

Suggested Retail:
$139.00 USD

Long and thin, much like a sliver, this modified version of an ottertail is a versatile paddle that is great for soloing, style-paddling, and tandem or solo tripping. The Sliver is a great paddle for those who have a tendency towards underwater recovery strokes. The thin/slightly stretched blade does not load the shoulder as much as wider paddles do; this helps to reduce fatigue, while still having ample volume to effectively 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. It then 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.

Available in Ash, Cherry, Walnut or specialty woods like Curly Maple, Butternut, etc., when accessible. Can be oiled, varnished or given our special combination finish of an oiled shaft and varnished blade or our vibrantly tinted WaterColours™ finish. Includes a Badger Paddle Sock for transport and storage.
