Werner Little Dipper Carbon
Source: bought it new
Lightweight, smaller blade make paddling miles with this paddle a breeze!
- Adjustable feather
- Take apart
- Ferrule can jam
This is a great low angle touring paddle! It is lightweight and the smaller blades make paddling a breeze. The adjustable ferrule had small increments for easy selection.
The only issue I found was the recessed take apart button can get jammed with sand if you are not careful.
The blades are well made and with care (as with any carbon fiber paddle) with stand the abuses of daily paddles. I would recommend this paddle to any long distance, or day paddler!
