Wonderful paddles, they are so light and easy to use! The Werner Neutral Bent Shaft naturally aligns your wrist to reduce stress on joints. The neutral alignment, unique to Werner Paddles, creates a stable leverage point for bracing and all types of paddle strokes. Special indexing allows more hand contact with the shaft, reducing fatigue and increasing comfort.
I like the design of the paddle, I feel like I get more stroke for less effort plus I don't have to overstrss my wrists to which I am grateful as I have carpal tunnel.
These paddles are light, very light and totally worthy the money spent; it took me a little while to appreciate the expense, but having used them all summer it was so worth it.
I highly recommend spending the extra money and getting these paddles, your wrists, arms and shoulders will thank you, especially if you are stuck in a headwind.
