The Werner Sherpa Carbon Paddle is an exceptionally smooth and responsive river running design. If you like paddling rivers and ripping up a wave or two, the Sherpa is a great choice.
45 degree blade offset significantly reduces wind resistance on the forward stroke for more efficient paddling.
Werner's exclusive Neutral Bent Shaft positions your hands for the best balance, comfort and control, helping reduce discomfort in your wrists and arms.
Carbon fiber continuous-weave blades for exceptional strength-to-weight ratio and long-lasting durability.
The Sherpa's mid-size blades are great for all around river running.
Balanced blade design is smooth and powerful from catch to release.
Small shaft option is available. To know if you need a small diameter shaft, measure your hand from the base of the palm to the tip of your middle finger. If you measurement is 6 1/4" or smaller you should try a small shaft. You can also print the "Shaft Diameter Print Out" in the Links section and use it to measure your hand.
Comments about Werner Sherpa Carbon Paddle - Bent 45° - Closeout:
Bought this paddle almost a year ago and have used it several times. Luv it. Great for white water, surf, and even distance creeking. Paddled 28 miles in a day at one point, so i assume fatigue was minimized. Recommend using board wax on the handles for additional grip. Some might complain about shortness of the shaft, but I'm 6' and paddle at a high angle. So you shouldn't have any issues if you fall into that category. Hope this helps.
