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!
