The high angle design has short wide blades for a powerful catch and stroke with a slight dihedral for smooth linking strokes. The paddle is kept at a high angle relative to the water and a faster cadence is used so it is best for linking a variety of maneuvering strokes. Also good for lumpy water paddling in adverse conditions that include deep water waves, current and wind-blown confused water of all sizes while exposure to steep, dumping waves against the shoreline is limited and carried out with studied expertise. If you are in the market for a classic all around paddle that will take anything you can throw at it, you have found it with the Shuna 2-Piece Carbon Kayak Paddle by Werner.
Werner Shuna 2-Piece Carbon Kayak Paddle:
This is a great paddle. I have this and Coryvrecken which has much larger blades. These are not whitewater paddles so take any review written by folks using these in classified rapids with a grain of salt. Lightweight so easy to keep paddling all day. I'm a big fit guy and can flex other paddles very easily. I prefer the stiffness of Werner paddles with carbon shafts. Blades slip in water easily and generate a good pull. Check Werner's website before buying this paddle is made for high angle stroke. If you want high performance spend the money and buy this paddle. If you paddle often you won't be disappointed.
