With a more pronounced tip and more surface area above the center of the blade, this design is optimized for a better forward stroke. So for the core elements of river running, pulling yourself through or over holes and drops, breaking in and out of current and ferrying across current, these blades are your best choice. The best white water boaters in the world believe in Werner designs. Their white water designs have a slight dihedral for smooth vertical maneuvering strokes. 

Straight Shaft

Straight Shaft

Straight shaft kayak paddles are the most common choice among paddlers and are ideal for those that like a traditional, simple feel. Straight paddles will save weight and cost while allowing for more variety in hand position.

Straight Shaft

River Running

River Running

Paddles with a river running blade shape will have a more pronounced tip and larger portion of the surface area above the center line of the blade. This allows for an earlier more powerful catch providing a more powerful forward stroke, making them ideal for river running, creeking or coastal rock gardening.
