The Werner Sho-Gun Straight Shaft Carbon Paddle provides the power and smooth, river-slicing performance you need to accelerate out of eddies and shoot tight narrows with precision. The large, buoyant blade and straight shaft yield efficient strokes for demanding trips down any volume of water, while the fiberglass shaft and lightweight carbon blade keeps the Sho-Gun stiff, responsive, and powerful.
