Strike Fiberglass Straight Shaft One-Piece Whitewater Paddle

Like its big brother Surge, the Werner Strike is built with a higher blade to shaft offset to keep the paddle blade vertical for longer during the stoke. A vertical blade translates to more power and efficiency. The mid-sized blades on the Surge are an ideal fit for the great majority of average size paddlers and women. They are a great overall choice for providing a well-rounded balance of power and cadence. Learn more about Choosing a Whitewater Paddle.

Offset Blade

With an increased blade to shaft offset, this blade forward design gives a more powerful catch and more verticality through the power phase. This design offers stroke versatility for everyday use.

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.
