The Werner Side Kick has an advanced blade design well suited for pulling off the latest play moves. Its downward tilting blades give great initial power in forward and reverse strokes, as well as immediate response to loading and unloading on command. It's an aggressive design that is well suited for the "tricksters" of the sport, but shouldn't be ruled out if you're not an advanced paddler. With its larger blade size, the Side Kick is a great choice for stronger paddlers. Also, the Sidekick 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.Check out the sizing chart for more features and options NEW for 2008.
