Run rivers and play in waves with this highly responsive paddle.

Responsiveness is the name of the game for the Werner Sherpa Paddle. From the light-in-your hand carbon shaft to the smooth action of the mid-sized blade, everything about this paddle lets you react to the river with speed and agility. With the Sherpa paddle in hand, you get the precise control to find the sweet spot in a wave or maneuver a burly rapid at mind-warping speed.

  • Mid-sized blade is friendly to a wide variety of paddlers and features a shape that creates a clean, powerful catch with every stroke
  • Blade features a slight dihedral shape that directs water away from the blade face for the smoothest feel when maneuvering and pulling hard
  • Continuous-weave fiberglass material makes for one of the strongest and lightest blades available
  • Straight shaft is lighter than bent-shaft designs and it allows for the widest range of hand-placement options
  • Standard Diameter shaft fits hands six-and-a-half inches or larger

Great Paddle for the Money

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I used this paddle for the first 4 years of my kayaking life and loved it. It never let me down. It is stiff with no flex and the blades are a good size to allow you to keep control on any water feature. I started with a 30 degree feather and have never paddled anything else, but I was comfortable with it from the beginning so there has never been a need to go different. The fiberglass blades will wear down after repeatedly being beaten against river rocks but they can take that beating. I used this paddle a lot and it still had a lot of life left in it when I put it aside.

Now the only reason I don't use this anymore was because I spoiled myself and upgraded to a Shogun. I mostly creekboat now and the Shogun fits that style better and is a step above. So if you have the money to spend and don't plan on just playboating in the local hole, go with the carbon/foamcore blades. They are a step above the fiberglass as for weight and ability to create power and control. But if you can't spend the extra $100 bucks, you will not be disappointed with the Sherpa. Its a great all around paddle, works for everything from playboating to running class 5!

Great paddle

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

It was time to replace our take apart kayak paddles with new ones. We both purchased a sherpa paddle, a 194 and a 198. They have a 30 degree feather, which is the first permanently feathered paddle we have used. The 30 degree is a very nice feather as it took no time at all to adjust our techniques to it. Wth this feather, there is hardly any wrist movement. The Sherpa is light weight and has actually improved our kayaking, especially my wife's. Of course, Werner paddles are well constructed and should last a long time. It appears the ends of the padddles are reinforced with more material which will prevent the ends from suffering too much damage when hitting rocks or shoving off from shore. Overall, we are both very happy we made the purchase of the Werner Sherpa paddles.

is this a 30 degree paddle?
