Description

When speed and power are mandatory for a safe run through the canyon.

It takes more than experience to keep you in the right line on a big red river. The Werner Sho-Gun 1-Piece Performance Whitewater Paddle provides the power and smooth, river-slicing performance you need to accelerate out of eddies and hit the narrows just right. The large, buoyant blade and straight shaft yield efficient strokes for demanding trips down any volume of water.

Quality!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Great paddle that really makes a difference. The paddle is super stiff and strong. I was previously using a Sherpa, and decide to upgrade to a Sho-Gun and I am glad I did. This paddle provides so much more control and power. Don't go cheap, go ahead and spend the money now because it will make a difference in the long run. I have now had this for a few months and have had it on some pretty tough creeks and it has held up to the beating I have given it.

Awesome Stick

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Amazing product from Werner, strong, powerful and super stiff! I also use a Sherpa and this paddle has noticeably stiffer blades. I was a little concerned about the durability of the foam core blades, but I've used this paddle on some gnarly shallow, rocky creeks and it is going great guns. Few scratches but hasn't lost any size as of yet.

Only downside is the jet black colour, makes it hard to find if you lose it in the river, and for signalling to other paddlers it can sometimes be a little hard to spot. Easy fixed though with some bright tape or stickers :)

Responded on

Great review! I was about to say the same thing - great for Creeking and won't wear down and lose size like the other blades (E.g. fiberglass). I don't like the jet black either, I have to put a bunch of colored stickers on it to see it.

One thing I would add - it's a bulkier blade so it doesn't cut through the water or feel as responsive, but that is the trade off for the enhanced durability
