High Angle paddling is typically a more aggressive style of paddling for those with more performance aspirations. The more vertical entry of the blade to the water (Through out the stroke the top hand should be about forehead height in this style) keeps the paddle closer to the boat and in turn allows for better tracking. More efficient as the boat travels along a more direct path. Due to the higher hand position, this style does wear on the smaller support muscles when proper technique is not used. Werner's high angle blades are designed shorter and wider, to match this steeper entry angle to the water with the perfect use of the blades surface area. High Angle designs work best when used with shorter paddle lengths of 205cm - 215cm. The combination of shorter paddle length and a shorter wide blade allows the right amount of balanced blade area to enter the water sooner, supporting a faster cadence, without having to over extend the upper arm. Werner paddles high angle designs have a slight dihedral for smooth vertical maneuvering strokes. Note Werner also flattens the back face spine to aid in these strokes.
Bent shaft aligns your wrists in a more ergonomic position to reduce fatigue while grasping the shaft for the confidence of full hand contact. Proper ergonomic hand, wrist and forearm position alleviates stress and strain and the potential for injury. A loose grip also promotes ergonomics, along with better overall technique, and some paddlers want the confidence of knowing if they do over grip due to habit or advanced conditions they are protected. This is especially important to those with pre-existing injuries. Taking design a step further, Werner innovated "Neutral Bent." Werner has achieved this by lining up all parts of the paddle in one straight line. The blades, the grip area and the ferrule. This allows for the familiar feel of a straight shaft paddle, making finesse strokes and rolling much easier and allowing for a seamless transition for those switching from straight to bent. Further attention to detail went into the indexing. Werner tested to best fit the hand, give secure full hand contact, better control and comfort even with a loose grip. Bent shaft has a slight penalty in weight and cost, but the trade off is the confidence in knowing you are protecting your body for the longevity of your paddling.
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.
High angle paddle blades are typically shorter and wider and meant to be inserted into the water closer to perpendicular in relation to the surface of the water. The Blade enters the water sooner, providing more power to quickly enact change to the kayak when needed while keeping the blade in close to the side of your boat and tracking straighter. High angle paddling will take a bit more energy to use, however, making them more suited for dynamic paddling situations.

Delivery is free within Kitsap County for boat and board purchases over $1000.00 and starts at $50.00 otherwise.
