Now that you mention it, actually selling you the blades only could open a can of worms Werner might not be interested in. So many what ifs that just ain't worth it. For example, simply, what if you f' up the shaft when you get around to removing the blade. Will you ask them to buy back the blades? And Werner definitely doesn't want a butt ugly paddle around with their name on it.
And selling to you directly also might violate arrangements with their local Werner dealer where ever or who ever they might be.
This is possibly putting Werner between a rock and a hard place which are similar places to where your paddle has been from the way it sounds.
I've got an old best buddy paddle that has blades with perhaps an inch missing all the way around, lost at less than an fraction of a millimeter at a nipping. Sometimes ya know, ya just got to suck it up and put that love of your life over the fireplace and develop a new relationship
. Please trust me, that is not my intentions for my wife although I might end up over her fireplace. Not that anyone would appreciate that sight.
Keep us posted. Very intriguing.
