    Great paddle for all types of water

    By Whitewater Enthusiast

    from Boston, MA

    Verified Reviewer

    Pros

    • Good Control
    • Lightweight
    • Minimizes Fatigue

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Whitewater

      Comments about Werner Bandit Carbon Canoe Paddle:

      Had this paddle for a couple years now, and I'm absolutely in love with it. Excellent lightweight carbon fiber, yet has held up to all the dings its taken over the years. I work for a guiding and touring company, doing any type of paddling from lakes and flatwater rivers, to Class 3/4 whitewater. The paddle gives me excellent control, and has made my expeditions in whitewater a lot smoother, as I have incredible control over the boat.

      Good, Light Paddle

      By Bob

      from Fredericksburg, VA

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • Comfortable Shaft
      • Good Control
      • Minimizes Fatigue
      • Very Light

      Cons

        Best Uses

          Comments about Werner Bandit Carbon Canoe Paddle:

          This is a good, light whitewater paddle. The handle and the shaft both have a good feel (but the handle could be larger--I have big hands.) I've had it almost three months and it seems to stand up to rocks. I would like it even more if it were available without the spoon.

              A:

              Assuming you meant "what size paddle do I need to get?" , there plenty of
              explanations on the web, google it. You'll find one method where you sit in
              a chair, flat footed and measure from the level at your eyes to the floor.
              That method has worked for me.

              I don't think the blade is big enough for raft guiding.

              I wouldn't recommend a spooned blade as a guide stick.

              It's pretty tough, it would be a waste in that usage tho.

              A:

              I've been using it for a couple of years to paddle a C-1. It seems to be at least as durable as any paddle I've had before. I retired my old Perception Harmony paddles because they were heavy. My last one, a Bending Branches Explorer, was light and wonderful until it broke as I was stroking upstream to a wave. This one is stronger and just as light. The major drawback that I could for using it as a guide stick is that it's very dark grey. If you drop it, you may not find it. Paint some bright stripes on it.

              I have used this paddle on the Devils River, TX twice. I am not an expert
              paddler, but it's an indestructible paddle and made me a better paddler.
