Sho-Gun Carbon Straight Shaft One-Piece Whitewater Paddle

It takes more than experience to keep you in the right line on a big red river. The Werner Sho-Gun Straight Shaft Carbon Paddle provides the power and smooth, river-slicing performance you need to accelerate out of eddies and shoot tight narrows with precision. The large, buoyant blade and straight shaft yield efficient strokes for demanding trips down any volume of water, while the fiberglass shaft and lightweight carbon blade keeps the Sho-Gun stiff, responsive, and powerful. Best of all, Werner reinforced the edges with a combination of Dynel and KEVLAR to protect the carbon blade from wear and tear intrinsic to whitewater kayaking

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

  • Ultimate performance brings together all of our most advanced designs.
  • The volume of the buoyant, full carbon, blade gives confidence for rolling and bracing, especially in aerated rapids.
  • Dihedral allows for smooth and stable forward paddling, a core philosophy for Werner.
  • With white water specific reinforcement channels, our low-profile back face design allows for a quieter catch and effortless exit of the stroke while maintaining strength.
  • Dynel® edges and Kevlar® reinforcement protect the paddle from the rigors of the whitewater environment.
  • Full sized blades are and ideal fit for larger, well-conditioned paddlers or those looking for more powerful strokes on shorter steeper rapids.
  • Optimized flex and strength. Choose our Bomber fiberglass Straight or carbon Neutral Bent shaft in Standard Diameter or Small Diameter.
  • Feather Angle: 1-piece options- unfeathered, Right hand control or left hand control, up to 90 degrees, in 5 degree increments. 2-piece R45/0/L45 or R30/L30. R45 is our most popular in river running and R30 in play boating.

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.
