Confluence Kayaks in Denver has a one of a kind Werner Index tester paddle. It's a whitewater paddle that can be set at 0,15,30, 45,60 degrees right or left hand. Take it for a spin and findout for yourself what's the perfect offset for you. With the pushof a button you'll know what feels right, before you drop cash based off what you read on the internet.
I personally perfer a 30 degree paddle. Low stress plus tons of power. It's one paddle that will do it all. Creek or play. I've tried the lower offsets great for play. Not so great for everything else. But, that's just me. I know others that love their 0 degrees or their 45 degrees. Now you can try before you buy.
Remember we're the only shop in the world with one of these paddles. So, come on down and try it out. (Sorry, it's a straight shaft.) But, the only difference between straight and bent is which way your thumbs are pointing.
I love to dance, but who needs the music- It throws me off.
