Twist 1 Piece Straight Shaft

The small size blades of the Twist make it the best fitting play paddle for the smaller sized whitewater paddler. (Match it with our Small shaft option for even more precise fit.) Developed alongside its larger counterparts the Player and Sidekick, this shape was a major innovation to play boaters, by setting the standard with down turned blades. This Werner design innovation gives immediate directional control in rudder and draw strokes, for surfing or setting up today's most advanced whitewater tricks. On the wave or throwing down river, take your Twist 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.

Standard Fiberglass

Standard performance blades are both lighter and more stiff than our injection molded blades.

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.

Built for the rigors of the whitewater environment, our fiberglass shafts have the highest level of strength.

Straight Shaft

For those that like a traditional, simple feel. Our attention to detail in texture, indexing and flex allows for confident control and comfort all day long.
