Redtail MSR BEAV paddle

The MSR – BEAV is a great all-rounder paddle and our favourite paddle... ever!! It is perfect for deep water paddling trips, but with the resin tip they have the strength to run rapids if you want to. They are made from 3x laminate Ash. They are finished in a high gloss lacquer and each paddle has its own unique fantastic grain pattern... you won't be disopinted with these paddles they have the wow factor and for the price are a steal. 


These are hand made by by John (check out his website) in Canada and we only get one shipment in once a year so get them while you can.

    A simple google search on how to choose the right size canoe paddle will give you plenty of ways by which to determine the right size. We have a simple way as seen in the diagram on the left. Simply hold a tape measure with your arm outstretched at 90 degrees, and measure the distance from your hand to the floor - this should give you a rough idea of which paddle length you need. Then subtract 1 inch.
    Our paddles are measured in inches, and that is the whole of the paddle, shaft and blade. So, if you have a measurement of say 58" you would want the 57" paddle. 


    In 1971, seventeen-year-old John Bell began his paddle-making career as an employee of North Country Paddle Company in Millbrook, Ontario. Two years later, John built a small hop in Millbrook where he began manufacturing conventional paddles.

    In 1991, a majestic Red-tailed Hawk swept past John and his wife Leslie as they were discussing the idea of a name change. John decided that a Red-tail Hawk would be the perfect symbol of excellence to represent his craft and the Redtail Paddle Company was born. John approached renowned Port Hope artist John Doherty and asked him to design a logo for his new company. The Redtail Paddle Company incorporated the following year with a spectacular logo and a new business vision. Redtail Paddle Company is located in Campbellford, Ontario.  In addition to manufacturing quality handcrafted conventional paddles that have made his business famous, he developed a line of custom high performance paddles to meet the demands of sport canoeists.

    Today, Redtail paddles are renowned for their beauty, functionality, and craftsmanship. The company focuses on supplying and servicing customers in North America and Europe with quality, Canadian handcrafted paddles backed by excellent customer service.

    Redtail Paddle Company also specializes in commemorative paddles which are perfect for marking special occasions such as retirements, awards, anniversaries, weddings, graduations, etc. Our client list includes major corporations, businesses, resorts, educational facilities, and individuals. Giving a beautifully handcrafted laser engraved paddle as a gift or award is a distinctive, treasured symbol of recognition as it is uniquely made using your seal, logo, photo, or personalized message.
