    LOL, I've already thought about that. All it's gonna take is one thrashing in the Hungry Mother hole and it'll be on its way down the Kanawha...

    Jaco only needed handpaddles.

    Ah, I didn't notice it was a kayak paddle... What caught my eye was the fact, that there's another TB'er,, that's gone rafting in WV...

    People, if you want a complete rush, & are into extreme goodness, I highly recommend this.

    I thought it was going to be a "Rainbow bass" style wood design with a Steinberger body
     
  10. That's a damn fancy paddle.

    Looks sweet. More random stuff should have exotic woods in it.

    You should of used the wood for building a bass. You can't lose a bass you've spent a lot of time on in a river. :)

    Thanks for the compliments. Sorry I sacrified the facings for a kayak paddle instead of a bass top, but wood is a renewable resource and there is plenty to go around. It does seem a little ludicrous to bash something that beautiful against river rocks...to tell you the truth I'm kind of scared to use it. I've got a carbon paddle which is taking the licks right now, the woody paddle is sitting in my office looking pretty. Kind of like the $4k high end basses we're afraid to actually play.

    Burl imbuya is pretty, but kind of dark....when you get it in the light you really see how beautiful it is.
