Player 1 Piece Bent Shaft

The Player, developed alongside its larger counterpart the Side Kick, was a major innovation to play boaters by setting the standard with downturned blades. This Werner design innovation gives immediate directional control in rudder and draw strokes, for surfing or setting up todays’ most advanced tricks. On the wave or throwing down river, we’re along for the ride.

Performance Level
Premium

Paddles that offer Premium Performance give you the right combination of light weight, stiffness, and durability. Whether you choose our Fiberglass or Carbon laminated blades, these are our most impact resistant paddles.

Blade Designs
Blade Dihedral-Kayak

Dihedral blade shape was created to direct water to flow evenly off each side of the blade creating a smooth and stable stroke.

Asymmetrical Blade Shape

Asymmetrical kayak blades are designed for a balanced forward stroke by reducing the flutter on each stroke.

Premium - Fiberglass

Our most impact and abrasion resistant blades with fiberglass construction that are known for durability.

Blade Shape
Play Boating

With more surface area and attention below the center line, the design on this blade helps to engage the water in a wave or hole faster for rudder or draw strokes.

Shaft Features
Neutral Bent Shaft

Align your wrists in a more ergonomic position to reduce your fatigue and gain the confidence of full hand contact. Our Neutral Bent Shaft is designed so the blade, ferrule, and grip are in a straight line for the familiar feel of a straight shaft.

Standard and Small Diameter Shaft

Available in Small or Standard diameter. Dial in your fit for better control, more comfort and less fatigue. Smaller built paddlers tend to like the feel of small shaft.
