I have a wide SOT kayak which means I need a long paddle, so I got the longest one available (250 cm). Still plenty light for a long day on the water, and what a difference the hooked blade makes. Adjustable ferrule system makes it easy to separate and adjust for different angles, and locks securely in place. Highly recommended
I like the angle and shape of the blades. They are much more like the shape of whitewater paddles which is great since I am using this paddle in whitewater. It comes in a range of lengths. The whitewater specific paddles do not usually come in lengths above 200cm. I was able to get the Werner Tybee in a 215cm length. Werner offers shorter lengths as well as longer than my 215.
I have now used this paddle only a few times and I really enjoy it. I have banged it off of rocks and used it to push off or rocks as well. It seems like a strong paddle.
If you have a wide boat and are looking for a strong short paddle for whitewater I recommend the Warner Tybee paddle.
