Werner Neutral Bent Shaft (2:23)

Our Neutral Bent Shaft is designed to alleviate stress and strain on your hands, wrist and forearms when you paddle. This strain is usually caused by a previous injury, over gripping the paddle shaft and can be acute for those who paddle in rough water conditions where five fingers of contact to the shaft must be maintained. The key benefits that are unique to our Neutral Bent Shaft are; natural alignment of the wrist reducing strain and fatigue, stable leverage point during ALL stokes which increases comfort and an advanced grip that fits the natural contour of your hand. The slightly heavier shaft weight, when compared to a straight shaft, is offset by the ergonomic benefits.

      Comments about Werner Shuna Carbon Paddle - Bent:

      I spent a lot of time researching paddles. I had been using a friends paddle that was the same style but a larger blade and a foam core carbon blade. I needed a paddle with a smaller shaft diameter and also a midsize blade- both of these factors reduce the strain on my arms and joints. I prefer a non foam core blade because I like the clean entry and a crisp catch.
      This paddle was instantly a win for me! I enjoyed the feel of it and after a few miles, I knew it was the best choice.

      Comments about Werner Shuna Carbon Paddle - Bent:

      Awesome all around paddle but I specifically choose one of their Premium line and not Ultimate because they said they had a more robust/rugged edge for bumping on rocks. Maybe I am just used to my far cheaper plastic paddle that i could push off rocks all day and not worry about a thing, but I am very cautious with this paddle around rocks and launching off beaches. For me the pros far out-weigh the con here but just wanted to mention as this was of interest to me.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Fast delivery, well packaged.

        is this the 2 piece version? splits at the middle so you can feather as well as take the paddle apart for easier storage or transport?

          Yes, Sean, the Shuna is two-piece with the adjustable feather ferrule in the middle of the shaft.
