You are officially warned: the Werner Straight Shaft Powerhouse Fiberglass 4-Piece Paddle will last longer than four hours. Do not be alarmed, do not seek medical attention, but do keep working your paddling mojo along the rapids and through the chutes, at least until you do wear out. Most people feel instantly at home with a straight shaft in their hands, and the large blades give you the power to dominate a wet 'n wild ride on the Upper Ammonnoosuc or Poudre. Despite your creeking tendencies, you don't prefer to mix pleasure with pain. Fiberglass construction feels sweet in your hands and goes easy on your body. Since it's light, stiff, and straight, you can grab the shaft anywhere and have a consistent and comfortable grip. The asymmetrical blades are bigger at the tip so you can dig in immediately, bear down, and get some power behind your stroke. Not only do you get a smooth entry, but the dihedral helps the water flow off the 112-square-inch blade, minimizing flutter. While you're good with both hands, the Powerhouse profile is 30-degree feather, right-handed. Lefties might take a bit longer to find the sweet spot, but it won't be an all-day learning curve. While the angle of entry remains vertically oriented, the feathering lets your blade slice through the air horizontally to reduce wind resistance. Four-piece construction lets you break this stick down into something manageable, as not every mode of transportation can accommodate the full length. Four different lengths optimally mean no one has to stretch to accommodate the paddle; instead, everyone's first time with the Powerhouse is a perfect fit.

The full size blades are evenly balanced, creating a clean catch that is immediately powerful and smooth through out the entire stroke. A slight dihedral offers the right combination for both smooth maneuvering strokes and a powerful forward stroke. Constructed using the highest quality continuous weave fiberglass material with superior strength and durability, the Werner Powerhouse kayaking paddle excels in strength and is rightfully known as bomber!

Durable and responsive, the Werner Powerhouse kayak paddle is ideal for larger and stronger paddlers who love to run big rivers and creeks.
The Powerhouse Carbon Whitewater Paddle from Werner offers amazing power and responsiveness needed for big creeks and river running. Full size blades are evenly balanced to create a clean catch that is immediately powerful and smooth through out the entire stroke. Also, the Powerhouse paddle is available in two shaft types, Straight or Neutral Bent Shaft. Both have their advantages: Paddlers are more familiar with straight shafts and like the light weight and ability to move their hands along a predictable, straight, and continuous grip area. Straight shafts are typically less expensive. The Werner Neutral Bent Shaft naturally aligns your wrist to reduce stress on joints. The neutral alignment, unique to Werner Paddles, creates a stable leverage point for bracing and all types of paddle strokes. Special indexing allows more hand contact with the shaft, reducing fatigue and increasing comfort.
