Start with the unique blade shape, allowing a less abrupt catch and higher cadence. Resized to meet the demands of today’s racers, but not so small to lose power. Gain a softer feel without sacrificing all your blade size. Note the unique 12 degree shaft to blade offset. A dihedral blade face makes it stable and consistent for all strokes. Feel the overall weight of just 14.75 ounces. Ultimate performance level uses the most advanced materials and process, gives elite level flex and balance for comfort and performance.

Carbon with a foam core
I've appreciated Werner's dedication to design and performance for many years when kayaking. They do not disappoint in the SUP arena. Extremely lightweight carbon fiber one-piece with a streamlined blade design that utilizes the hydrodynamics of a partial dihedral blade that produces optimum results.
I've used a straight shaft before, this new one is their bentshaft which after paddling, enhances the forward reach and eases elbow pain on a nose draw. The only way this paddle could be even better is if it was available in small shaft, but I love the performance!
