The Werner Kalliste's performance core blades have an exceptionally light and buoyant feel on the water and offer silky smooth strokes. The mid-size design of this paddle is perfect for average-size, low-angle paddlers.
Werner's exclusive Neutral Bent Shaft positions your hands for the best balance, comfort and control, helping reduce discomfort in your wrists and arms.
Performance Core carbon fiber blades are light, buoyant and exceptionally durable.
Curved dihedral blade face reduces "flutter" and enhances maneuverability, helping you smoothly link strokes.
Werner's exclusive Smart-View™ adjustable ferrule gives you a convenient two-piece paddle that looks and feels like a one-piece.
The Smart-View system lets you quickly and easily adjust the offset, or feather angle, of your paddle in 15 degree increments with right- or left-hand control.
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 your 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 Kalliste Carbon Paddle -Bent:
Bought this to reduce carpal tunnel problems that caused numb fingers after a full day of paddling with the club gear. While it didn't magically solve all problems, I'd say it reduced the next day numb finger problem by about half. I think the bent shaft, my selection of 30deg feather, and the lighter weight allow me to relax my hands a lot more while paddling.
Definitely expensive, but the quality of the product is there and it works well. I also like the fact that it comes out of the water quite clean and allows me to paddle with dry hands when the water is calm. The only negative is that the right hand side paddle sometimes flutters a bit if I hold it too loosely. I guess nothing is perfect.
Service and delivery comments:
