I now have two, one for each continent off which I paddle! Like the value for money, lightness, and ability to change degrees of feather easily.

Jury is still out. I'm thinking I might have been better off going for the next step up. I'm happy with the weight, the way it goes together and comes apart, and manufacturing QA. The paddle blades flex appreciably though when paddling hard. I'm pretty new to the sport, tand perhaps that's normal... I feel though that I spent a significant amount of money and may have bought a something that's just a little bit short of what I would have been really happy with.

Top Question & Answer
Q: We ordered 2 ocean caper kayaks and need some paddles. We were thinking of the Werner Skagit paddles but aren't sure shat size to get. I'm 5'8' and my wife is 5'1'. Is our paddle selection ok and if so what size should we order?
A: The size of the paddle is based on the height of the paddler and the width of the boat. Based on our charts you both fall in the same size paddles, our recommendation for paddle size would be 230. Yes, the paddle you have chosen is a great paddle. The Adjustable Ferrule System is a great feature to have, along with the fiberglass reinforced nylon blades.. which have lightest swing weight. The shaft is also a sturdy carbon/fiberglass blend. Good pick!

Q: My Kayak is a 30" width, 10 ft Wilderness. I purchased a 220 Werner Skagit Paddle standard shaft, but I'm thinking I should have gotten at least the 230 with the smaller shaft. I'm 5'1" tall. It seems that I'm really bending and reaching and often collide with the side of the kayak.......maybe I just need a paddling lesson. Please advise.
A: If your banging the sides of the boat, I would definitely recommend a longer paddle shaft.

Q: My wife is 5'2" tall, 6 1/2" from base of palm to the tip of her longest finger, and paddling in the front seat of a tandem kayak with a 28" wide cockpit. She is not an athletic type. What size Skagit FG paddle is recommended, including the shaft size?
A: thank you for your question, the size of a paddle is from blade tip to blade tip. i would recommend a 230cm paddle
