    Werner's workhorse.

    You've probably seen Werner's Sherpa Carbon Paddle in the roughest whitewater videos getting tossed off waterfalls and driving down some of the hardest lines ever cleaned. Carbon blades give this paddle the lightest swing weight in Werner's collection, and the fiberglass shaft has the highest level of strength. The asymmetric blades have pronounced tips for power and dihedral cross-sections for a smoother stroke.

    Made a Huge Difference

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    10/5 stars. This incredibly lightweight, easy to paddle with. The shape of the blade makes super efficient strokes. The straight shaft provides strength for bracing and allows you to position your hands non-restrictively. This paddle has definitely upped my technical game and has been a ton of fun! The 197 cm has been a great fit for me (5'11) for playboating, rivers, and creeking.

    Great performance & Super Reliable

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Love Werner Paddles! They are trustworthy & exceptionally durable!

    I really like the Sherpa because the blade is a great size for mid-sized paddlers wanting good stroke power, but also a size easy enough to maintain a good stroke rate. I'm stoked on it for creeking, but it's great playboating as well!

    Carbon is lightweight & long lasting! And, 30 degree offset is great happy medium for playboting & creek boating!

    Bomber paddle

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I use this paddle on a daily basis for river running, creeking, and playboating once in awhile. The blade shape is perfect for maximizing power per stroke. The mid-sized blade is good for mid-sized paddlers and use for the occasional playboating.

    I've wedged this paddle between rocks, smacked it against cliff walls, and let it ride under a pile of gear in the back of a truck on the way to the put in. It's super durable and I trust it to not break when I need it most.

    Also, small shaft is really nice!!
