Built to take you where no other paddle would dare to, the Werner Sherpa Bent Shaft R30 Fiberglass Paddle offers adept maneuverability and efficiency. The Sherpa Bent features a dihedral blade shape for a smooth and stable forward stroke, ensuring that you're able to make the necessary moves while paddling tough runs and tight conditions. A low-profile reinforced spine enhances the blade's maneuverability, and the bent shaft puts you wrists in a more neutral position, in turn preventing fatigue and promoting garnered confidence as you navigate hard runs.
