Great paddle. Perfect for my needs.
I purchased the Werner Skagit Hooked Fiberglass Kayak Paddle after
considerable time spent in reading reviews. I am over 6 feet tall
and paddle a new Native Watercraft FX 12 with a 30.5 in beam and
seat capable of raising about 4 inches above normal paddle height
so I followed the Werner paddle length guide and settled on the 260
cm paddle. It is perfect for my low angle method of paddling, well
made and ACK's price plus free shipping was the best that I could
find readily available. This is a winner paddle from a great source.
Like the paddle but it doesn't fit in the kayak paddle holder as it is
too large in diameter. I wish they had told me that as we had to run
out and purchase a different paddle at the store.
Does everything I needed, and lightweight. Black carbon shaft does
get hot in the sun, but not bad enough for me to return. Good price
and excellent ACK service.
This is my first paddle. I have
used a few rental paddles and
they were alway alum.=
heavy. This paddle is very light
weight, a recent 8 hr trip was a
joy. Fit and finish is very nice.
I would buy again.
I needed a longer paddle for
use with my Slayer. Budget
wouldn't allow anything more
expensive. After determining
that I was a low angle paddler,
I chose this one in a 260cm
length. I am very happy with
my purchase, it is a very well
made paddle, looks good,
paddles very well, and I stay
dry now. Can't go wrong at this
pricepoint with this paddle.
An excellent paddle. Fitting is
tight and paddle is light for
such a long one. I bought this
paddle to use with my OT
Discovery 119 and it is perfect
with my lowered seat. An
excellent choice to use with the
119 or similar canoes.
I really like this paddle. Its
quality and design features
make it a pleasure to use. In
hand, the grip is extremely
comfortable and stays
comfortable throughout the
day. The drip guards do a
great job, which really is nice
because I often go out in my
kayak to shoot photos. The
paddle is light, well made, and
highly effective as a low angle
fishing paddle. I’m very happy
with this purchase.
ACK posted this halfway
around the world to New
Zealand. First thing you notice
with this paddle is how light
and how nice it feels in your
hands. The two piece system
used by Werner is tight with no
flex or rattle and the 15 degree
adjustments are well worth it
for personal fitment and
paddling style. The overall
appearance and feel let you
know you have a quality
product in your hands. I opted
for the low angle 240 for my
Moken 12 SOT and this seems
about right for my 6'6" frame
but I could have gone up to the
260 without any issues.

Compared to the so called
good paddles in this price
range available to me at home
there is absolutely no
comparison between them. If
this ever wears out I will be
purchasing another one from
