Excellent value for the money! For the recreational kayaker, this
paddle is a fine choice - it's affordably priced, light, nicely shaped,
and the two halves lock up solidly tight. The blade could be a bit
stiffer, but this is only noticeable when I'm paddling up-river and
digging hard to push through the shallows. Getting the right length
is really important. As a new 'yakker, I bought a cheap aluminum
adjustable-length paddle and figured out my paddling style and
optimum length ( low angle and 240 CM for my Ocean Kayak Tetra
12 Angler) and then spent the reasonable coin for a Werner paddle.
Very happy with this purchase and with the customer service from
This paddle is awesome. I got it in the 260 cm since I'm tall and
have a large sit on top tandem kayak for me and the wife. The
adjustments on the two piece are solid and easy to use. The only
thing I wasn't 100% sold on was the size of the paddle in the
water. For me it was a little on the small size and didn't give me as
much push as I'd like. We got caught in a head wind headed home
and paddling hard you could tell this paddle was slipping and
fluttering for me, but I'm a big guy and this is supposed to be a
touring paddle anyway.
Well made, strong paddle. Somewhat heavy compared to other
I researched various paddles and I am glad I picked this one. It is
light and the low angle makes paddling a pleasure. I ordered the 250
because the Feelfree lure is 36 inches wide. It is a perfect fit.
Werner Skagit Hooked Fiberglass Kayak Paddle Straight Shaft- The
advice from your representative was spot on. I went with the 260 cm
paddle for my Native Watercraft Ultimate. The paddle is light, stiff and
the ferrule system feels solid. Several 4 hour trips were a breeze with
this Werner. My heavy aluminum paddle is on permanent standby.
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.
