Five-Falls Guide Stick


An “Old School Stick,” handcrafted for guiding and steep creeks. This straight blade is named after the Five-Falls on Section 4 of the Chattooga River. It comes standard with an epoxy dynel tip, edging and sleeve then encapsulated in an epoxy glass composite, followed by additional coats of West Systems. Sized to length, then personalized with one’s name, serial number and signed, the Five-Falls can also be custom ordered with an epoxy carbon-fiber blade.  Attention to care and maintenance will extend the life of the paddle for those enjoyable days on the river.
