    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

          Verified Buyer

          Pros

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

              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.

                  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.

                  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.
