At Grey Owl, years of research, development and innovative ideas meet with engineering excellence to bring the most advanced wooden paddles available. They lead the industry with features such as uniquely laminated exotic woods, models with urethane plastic tips and edging where you need it. The respect for the past has led them to retain hiddden plastic inserts in the tips of the one-piece wooden paddles.

Durable, lightweight, stiff and sleek describe the new Grey Owl composites. They evolved from the successful wooden line and compliment rather than displace the legendary wooden models.

Whether you are a serious racer, week-end warrior, guide, novice or seasoned tripper, Grey Owl has a model that will excite your paddling sensibilities and satisfy your boating needs.

Made in Ontario, Canada

Grey Owl's line of kayak paddles include three adult and one child's paddle in both wood and composites. There are models for all kayakers at every level of experience. All paddles have been designed to keep the weight to a minimum so hour after hour and mile after mile these moderately priced paddles are a joy to swing.

Except for the child's Mayfly, the Grey Owl's designs are primarily a low angle blade for those who prefer a laid back easy cruising stroke. The dihedral spoon blades make for a smooth, effecient stroke and the take-apart shaft allows the paddle to be used unfeathered or feathered 60 degrees right or left. The child's Mayfly is a one piece junior paddle.

These paddles are distinguished by their long slender blades and overall resilience. The blade is scaled to the shaft and gets larger as the shaft length increases. Generally speaking, larger blades are more suitable for steering, while the smaller blades lend themselves to solo paddling.

Grey Owl's recreational paddles are characterized by the multi-laminated designs of contrasting woods and blades that remain constant in size throughout different lengths.
Because of their design they tend to have a stiffer flex than the traditional models.
In general, the stiffer the paddle, the more effecient it becomes, but some of the comfort found in paddling with a softer flex is sacrificed. This line of paddles is shorter and wider and offers the widest range of canoeing applications. Whether you paddle on entry level flatwater, moving water, wilderness rivers, whitewater, or in freestyle competitions, Grey Owl has the paddle shape and size to fit your needs.

These are excellent shallow or deep water paddles that offer increased efficiency through paddle design and paddling technique. The blade of the paddle is offset from the shaft to allow the blade to remain vertical to the canoe's path throughout the stroke. This improves the effeciency of each stroke and allows shorter strokes at an increased stroke rate. Grey Owl Bent Shafts are hard to beat for long distance paddling.
