I liked the paddle, shaft, grip, blade,, mine was 67 inches. Air strokes in big water are not desirable.
However, 6 weeks into the trip, the shaft snapped. Black spiral wound carbon? glass? And Werner would not stand by their product. They offered no help. They would not warrant the product. I repaired the shaft finally at the side of the Colorado river with a 40 inch dowel epoxied down the center and a e-glass wrap on the exterior,, doubling the weight, Needed, but close to useless.
It was a great paddle,, but I will never buy another Werner product. I'd love to,,, because I liked the paddle I want to try the Nantahala,,, but they did not stand by their product and customer service was miss named,, it was strictly company service.
