The Shogun uses the most advanced technology in this river running paddle. As powerful as its name suggests, the rivers that paddlers take the Sho-Gun often need some aggression to navigate each horizon line. This is the chosen paddle for many at the top of their game. Available in Straight 1 piece or 2 piece and Bent 1 piece. Prices range from $350-$450 depending on which option you choose.
I purchased a 1-piece, carbon straight-shaft Sho-Gun with a small diameter at a length of 200. I chose this paddle out of all of the others firstly because Werner's are the best. After whitewater kayaking for years, I wanted a paddle that is light, strong, and has long enough reach. The blade is also large enough to get you where you want to go. I would buy this one again!
