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: I am 5,11 and my boat is 25 and 1/5 width. I am interested in a Werner Baja Fiberglass or a Werner Skagit . Which paddle should I buy? ,what size and shaft Txs Horatio
A: Given your height and width of the kayak I would recommend you a 230cm paddle. Our advise is to buy the "best" paddle you can afford given that it will typically be lighter and stiffer. On this case the Skagit will be a better option.

Q: My hands are 6.5" from base of palm to tip of longest finger. Is the standard shaft going to be comfortable or would I be better off with the small shaft?
Based on your hand size you would probably be most comfortable with the small shaft.

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!
