You can do it with the Camano.
- Mid-sized fiberglass blades suit a low-angle paddle style with a casual cadence, while the dihedral profile offers low flutter and comfortable resistance
- Smart-View adjustable ferrule features a viewing window to see the feather angle
- Carbon blend straight shaft is the ideal mix of low weight and strength for long-distance, more-aggressive paddling

I'm in love.
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Third year in my little tugboat (Native Watercraft Marvel 12), and time for me to have a for-reals paddle. After a less than stellar experience at my local outfitter, I turned to the web, and found backcountry.com. I asked for a paddle pro, and Lara came to my rescue! We had a long talk about my boat, my style, where we paddle. . . decided the Camano 240 was the best bet.
I've been out with it twice, and from the first moment, I knew it was the right choice. Lightweight, easy swing, comfortable grip, and long enough for my wide recreational kayak with an elevated seat. My BFF has the Pungo 140, and has decided this is her next paddle, too. The 230 paddles are just a little too short for chubby girls in chubby boats!
We paddle on bays of Lake Michigan, some inland lakes, and slow to moderate rivers.
Thanks for all your help, Lara!

I've used this paddle for two years now, in all 4 seasons of paddling, and it has been stellar. Great for the price. Pretty lightweight and perfect for a good strength/weight/price combo. highly recommended!
Werner Camano Fiberglass/Straight Shaft
Love my new paddle. Had the Werner Skagit but wanted a step up. This paddle is much lighter which makes my paddling more enjoyable.
