From the thrilling rapids of Colorado's Upper Animas to the surfable waves of West Virginia's New River Gorge, the Werner Sherpa Fiberglass 4-Piece Paddle with Straight Shaft gives playboaters and river runners a smooth and stable paddling platform with low swing weight and exceptional strength. This premium paddle features a collapsible four-piece design for easier packing when you're road tripping to your favorite stretch of whitewater or flying across the globe for exotic river runs. Its straight fiberglass shaft gives a familiar feel for trusty paddling performance. Mid-sized fiberglass blades feature Werner's dihedral shaping for a smooth, stable stroke through turbulent stretches of water. Its low-profile, reinforced spine enhances overall strength and blade maneuverability during technical stretches.
