Bending Branches Optimus Paddle System
« on: November 26, 2015, 01:06:04 pm »
Check out the video and more description here:

I got this last fall as a part of their testing crew.
I have to say, this is pretty darn awesome.
It has a lot of features, push pole, stake out pole, canoe paddle, stand up paddle.
The price point is pretty damn good too..

Any idea if this would work with a Manta Ray? I know the companies are the same!?
Thanks

You need to have the correct ferrule set up. 
Your paddle would have to have the snap button system

Thanks for the reply john.So I'm guessing the diameters are the same?
Looks like an interesting concept and I'm in the market for a new paddle and was leaning towards the Manta Ray.

This is awesome!! We're are people picking this Up? I have been looking for a stake out pole, plus I would love a stand up paddle to push around while sight fishing! Great share John!

You could contact any dealer that sells Aquabound/Bending branches gear and they could get it in for you. I dont know what he cost would be, but I'd venture to say they arent too pricey

Is there a dealer there close to Hali? Maybe I could pick one up when I go over for that tournament

"The Trail shop" sells Aquabound/Bending branches.
Id suggest calling to see if they can order it in. I doubt they carry it at the moment.
