Werner built the Tybee FG IM Hooked Paddle for kayak fishing, but it's a worthy paddle for cruising to the sand bar for party time. The carbon blend straight shaft is tough without being heavy, and the midsized, low-angle blades made of fiberglass-reinforced nylon are extremely versatile for a wide range of paddlers, so when you lend your buddy your yak, he'll be able to get around the lake just fine. The Tybee's Smart View Adjustable ferrule makes for simple and precise connections, so you'll never have to worry about limping into shore with half a paddle in hand.
