If one can commit to a good loose grip style of paddling, Werner's straight shaft option is solid choice. For the entry level paddler, it allows the ability to save and invest in lighter swing weight because straight shaft is less expensive. For others they simply like the traditional, simple feel of a straight shaft. The attention to detail in texture, indexing and flex allows for confident control and comfort all day long.
The innovators of the Long Slender Rectangular blade shape. Copied, but never duplicated, Werner's blade shape is far and away the most gentle on the body, allowing you to enjoy the water all day without feeling beat up tomorrow. A softer feel and higher cadence without having to sacrifice blade surface area. Match this shape to your physical size and goals in the sport with 3 different sizes.
The "Tweener" size shaft was designed to be the perfect compliment to the Family Adjustable system. With a diameter between the Small Fit and Standard Fit, "Tweener" truly helps not only fitting a variety of heights, but a variety of hand sizes, while Family Adjustable fits a wide variety of heights. The Family Adjustable system and Family Travel system (also with "Tweener") are standard on the Versatile Use "Vibe" and "Thrive" models.
Family Adjustable. Using the proven Lever Lock adjustable system, we now offer a full 16" of height range, fitting paddlers from 4'10" to 6'2" with a simple and easy to use mechanism. We've added some very cool Werner additions to the system, including printing both height and length measurments right on the shaft. Our Tweener diameter shaft only further accommodates the family to fit a wide range of hand sizes comfortably. Find Family and Travel on our Vibe and Thrive.
