The lightweight Werner Corryvreckan Carbon Paddle's full-size assymetrical blades maximize the power and efficiency of well conditioned high-angle paddlers. Bent shaft for a more comfortable grip. Werner's exclusive Neutral Bent Shaft positions your hands for the best balance, comfort and control, helping reduce discomfort in your wrists and arms. Full-size, high-angle blades are ideal for well conditioned paddlers who want to get the most out of every stroke. Curved dihedral blade face reduces "flutter" and enhances maneuverability, helping you smoothly link strokes. Carbon fiber continuous weave blades for exceptional strength-to-weight ratio and long-lasting durabilty. Werner's exclusive Smart-View(TM) adjustable ferrule gives you a convenient two-piece paddle that looks and feels like a one-piece. The Smart-View system lets you quickly and easily adjust the offset, or feather angle, of your paddle in 15 degree increments with right- or left-hand control. To keep your Smart-View Ferrule working properly, after each use take the paddle apart and rinse both parts of the ferrule thoroughly with fresh water. Store the two parts of the paddle with the blades up. And NEVER use a lubricant on the ferrule; that will collect debris. Small diameter shafts are available and recommended for paddlers whose hand (from the base of the palm to the tip of the middle finger) measures 6 1/2" or smaller.
