Odachi Carbon Bent Shaft One-Piece Whitewater Paddle

In a collaboration with Werner's engineers and some of the best racers in the world, The Werner Odachi has been designed from the ground up specific for down river and creek racing. When you feel the need for speed and control in the toughest whitewater, turn to the Werner Odachi. With an increased blade to shaft offset, this blade forward design gives a more powerful catch and more verticality through the power phase and the long blade length provides greater leverage. The Odachi utilizes a greater dihedral to stabilize powerful forward strokes through turbulent conditions while the unique race inspired blade tip features a symmetrical shape for more surface area, meaning more efficiency when matching a more vertical race stroke and a subtle scoop allows for more purchase.

Note: The design features that make this paddle fast, also make for a unique feel in your hands. Bracing and rolling are different. With the proven River Running line up to round out your quiver, Werner did not intend the Odachi to be an all around paddle. Learn more about Choosing a Whitewater Paddle.

Bent Shaft

Bent Shaft

Bent paddle shafts allow you to align your wrists in a more ergonomic position, reducing strain and fatigue while maintaining the confidence of full hand contact. Werner's neutral bent shaft design keeps the blade, ferrule and grip in a straight line for a familiar feel of a straight shaft, making finesse strokes and rolling much easier and allows for a seamless transition for those switching from straight shaft to bent shaft paddles.

Bent Shaft
