Low Angle is the most popular as it is more universal, primarily being more relaxed, but still allowing folks to paddle at a higher performance. Low Angle designs have longer and narrower blades designed match this lower entry angle to the water with the perfect use of the blades surface area. The true benefit to low-angle is for those less likely to work on developing their forward stroke skills, and want to take the sport at a more casual, recreational level, the lower hand position (focus on keeping your top hand at shoulder height throughout the stroke) of this style puts significantly less wear on the smaller support muscles like shoulders, traps, biceps and triceps. Good technique can be developed and used with a low angle style, and is the choice for many who just prefer this body position and the ability to switch back and forth. Werner's low angle designs have substantially more dihedral, to keep the blade stable as it travels further from the side of the boat.
Werner's patented Smart-View ™ Adjustable Ferrule System is the most advanced ferrule system in touring paddles. Solid 1-piece paddle feel. Without the need for tools, the simple system gives a solid feel in your hands from the first day and throughout the life of the paddle. Sleek Low Profile Design. No external levers to break, collars to contend with, or additional parts to wear out over time. Nothing to snag on gear, on or off the water. Adjustable. With the simple push one of one button, adjust to your desired feather angle in 15 degree increments. Smart View is standard on all Werner Touring models (except for our value oriented Baja and Sprite).

Low angle paddles feature blades which are long and narrow and meant to be inserted into the water closer to parallel with the surface of the water. If your top hand stays around shoulder height you are utilizing a low angle technique. This style of paddling is very efficient and commonly used for more recreational paddling or when covering long distances and will benefit from conserving energy and reduced fatigue.
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.
