The Werner Skagit CF Paddle offers the lightest swing weight available in the recreation paddle category. It also features an advanced blade design for smooth, flutter-free strokes. The Skagit is perfect for low-angle recreational paddlers seeking great performance at a great price. Carbon reinforced nylon blades are super lightweight and durable. Advanced blade design enables smooth, efficient strokes. Werner's exclusive Smart-View (TM) adjustable ferrule gives you a convenient two-piece paddle that looks and feels like a one-piece. The Smart-View system lets you quickly and easily adjust the offset, or feather angle, of your paddle in 15 degree increments with right- or left-hand control. Small diameter shafts are available and recommended for paddlers whose hand (from the base of the palm to the tip of the middle finger) measures 6 1/2"" or smaller.
