Werner Shuna Glass bladed kayak paddle with straight shaft. The Shuna is the high angle paddle for those looking for a mid sized blade area. Built to an excellent standard, the Shuna comes fitted with the Werner Smart View Adjustable split system.
A great all-round touring and sea kayak paddle with a nice size blade for longer trips along the coast. The smaller blade size reduces the fatigue that can come with a larger paddle, alowing you to go further and see more.
The fibreglass blades offer the best balance of weight and abrasion resistance, with a dihedral design that lets water flow evenly over the blade. Combined with an asymmetrical shape, this creates a nice smooth movement through the water. We have demo paddles in-store for you to try on the canal, so you can feel it for yourself!
Werners straight shafts are traditional, light weight, less expensive and allow a paddler to move their hands along the shaft in a predictable manner with a straight and continuous grip area. If a paddler can maintain a natural wrist alignment by lightly loosening the outer fingers of the non-control hand during a stroke(think “OK” symbol) they can reduce wrist fatigue. If your paddling style allows for a loose grip and you do not paddle in rough water conditions, save some paddle weight and some money and purchase one of the straight shaft paddles.
