Werner Construction & Design
All Werner Ultimate and Premium blades are carefully hand crafted using a pressure molding process of high quality fiberglass or carbon weave materials and epoxy resin. Our pressure molding process has proven superior to other processes in achieving the right balance between light weight and durability.
All Werner paddles have carefully designed features to offer the best paddle performance at several price points. In addition to a long life, our design features work together to offer all the benefits of reduced fatigue and increased paddle performance.
