The Werner Skagit Kayak Paddle (formally the Werner Cascadia) is an unbeatable value for a performance paddle that is suited well for new entrants and recreational kayakers alike. The fiberglass nylon blades have the lightest swing weight at this price coupled with a smooth, stable stroke. Adjustable ferrule system is standard.

The Werner Skagit Kayak Paddle is a great first paddle for recreational kayaking on freshwater. Purchased this paddle because my friends recommended it and couldn't be happier. May end up buying a spare because when broken down it will fit in my kayak's dry storage area.
Pro..light weight..cons...too flexible of blade on class 2 rapids.. It is durable, but would spend an extra $100.00 to get a fiberglass paddle.
Great paddle. After using it for a few days, I started playing with the adjustment and ended up with it at 15 degrees. Seems most comfortable paddling with it at a slight twist.
Loved this paddle. I'm a newbie so I didn't know a lot about paddles when I started out. This is my second paddle purchase through ACK and after doing some research I decided to go with the 240 Standard Shaft for our Liquid Logic Deuce Coupe. I couldn't be happier...
