The large surface area of the Gunflint’s blade makes it easy to get your canoe moving with only a few strokes, and has loads of power on offer when the current or wind is against you. Because it keeps its width right to the bottom it maintains excellent power even in shallow-water conditions where a longer blade couldn’t be sufficiently submerged.
The Gunflint comes with an array of options allowing you a dedicated paddle that perfectly conforms to your needs. A 12° Bent-Shaft option offers maximum power and bite to propel your canoe even in strong headwinds and rapid currents, while a straight-shaft option allows for more deft ruddering-strokes and a more traditional look and feel.
The Gunflint is also offered in three different durability choices: Standard, Wilderness, and Ultralight. The Standard option utilizes Cedar and Aspen with a fiberglass coating to offer a lightweight paddle that perfectly balances weight and durability without sacrificing affordability, making it our most popular choice. If you’re pushing off rocks or tackling tricky currents in narrow rivers or streams, step up to the Wilderness option. Walnut, Ash, and Cherry hardwoods supplement the standard features to offer a tougher paddle that handles almost anything you can throw at it while only adding a few ounces to the weight. But if your trips require long portages or all-day paddling endurance, consider the Ultralight option. The thinner blade is backed with carbon fiber, and the shaft thinned relative to the standard model, making an extremely comfortable, lightweight paddle that still feels like a feather even after hours of paddling. Because of the reduced weight, this paddle should only be touching air or water; no shoving off rocks with this option.
