The Werner Camano Hooked Paddle is a great new angling paddle. The best angling paddle is of course the best paddling paddle and the Camano provides the perfect combination for paddlers who want gentle power and use a relaxed all around touring stroke. The Camano Hooked features the award winning Low Angle mid-sized blade design and offers the best balance of light swing weight, durability and performance. It comes in a striking gray fish scales pattern with the Werner Hooked logo.

I bought the Werner Camano Hooked paddle when I accidentally left my Bending Branches Pro Angler at the landing, thinking nobody would ever report they found it. I really like the ferrule on the Camano, the weight and the feel of the shaft. The week after I lost the Pro Angler, I went back to the landing and there was a sign saying a person found it. I now have both paddles. Which is better? Very hard to tell. I'll have to bring them both to the water sometime and run a test.
After reading a lot of reviews on the Werner Camano finally decided to purchase one from ACK. As always ACK exceeded in their very fast shipping and best service all around. Tested the 230cm Camano Hooked last Saturday on a lake and it performed far higher than I expected. Extremely light at 28 oz. and very strong, it push my Kayak very fast and with perfect control. It slice the water like a hot knife on butter. Like other reviewers explained, I also did not got exhausted or feel any pain on my arms, wrists, or numb fingers (Carpal tunnel syndrome) after paddling a long distance. My other paddle was a BB Angler Classic FG/Nylon 230cm 38 oz. which will now be my backup paddle. This 10 oz. difference and the paddle shape makes a huge difference after a few minutes paddling. Now with the Camano I'm paddling faster with less effort, with more control, far less exhaustion (if any). It really worth the price. I think is one of the best purchases I made for my kayaking life. I own a West Marine Pompano 120 Kayak fully rigged for fishing with ACK items. I'm 5'7", 175 lbs., 50 years young and really, really, happy with my new Werner Camano Hooked Paddle!
