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.
