If one can commit to a good loose grip style of paddling, Werner's straight shaft option is solid choice. For the entry level paddler, it allows the ability to save and invest in lighter swing weight because straight shaft is less expensive. For others they simply like the traditional, simple feel of a straight shaft. The attention to detail in texture, indexing and flex allows for confident control and comfort all day long.
The innovators of the Long Slender Rectangular blade shape. Copied, but never duplicated, Werner's blade shape is far and away the most gentle on the body, allowing you to enjoy the water all day without feeling beat up tomorrow. A softer feel and higher cadence without having to sacrifice blade surface area. Match this shape to your physical size and goals in the sport with 3 different sizes.
The Apex is available in two different shafts:
The Tech Shaft - A stiffer shaft better for shorter distances and technical race courses.
The Classic Shaft - Werner's standard flex shaft that will excel when used for longer paddles and down-winding.
*Keep in mind shaft flex is subjective you go with what feels best for you!
