When speed and power are mandatory.
It takes more than experience to keep you in the right line on a big red river. The Werner Sho-Gun Straight Shaft Carbon Paddle provides the power and smooth, river-slicing performance you need to accelerate out of eddies and shoot tight narrows with precision. The large, buoyant blade and straight shaft yield efficient strokes for demanding trips down any volume of water, while the fiberglass shaft and lightweight carbon blade keeps the Sho-Gun stiff, responsive, and powerful. Best of all, Werner reinforced the edges with a combination of Dynel and KEVLAR to protect the carbon blade from wear and tear intrinsic to whitewater kayaking.

- Q & A
Sho-Gun vs. Powerhouse
Compare the thickness of Sho-Gun to a Powerhouse. The added thickness of the Sho-Gun is designed to add buoyancy and there for added 'lightness' in the water.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have used this paddle since 2013. It has been my go to for trips to Mexico, Dominican Republic, Colorado, California, Canada, Russia, & on my home rivers in North Carolina! I love the feel of this paddle in the water, excellent purchase without being too stiff. I've also found it to be more durable than fiberglass blades.
