I can't deny that the Werner's are probably stronger, but I'm sold on the AT2. I like the feel of it so much that I'm okay knowing I might break it. And I've only broken one, on a big drop. I have an AT2 that made it through 3 full seasons of heavy use, and now we still use it for non-creeking runs. I river run, creek, and used to playboat a lot. I carry a breakdown paddle for piece of mind.
I have a lot of friends that only use the Werner DD. You can't go wrong with either if you are running drops under 30'. If you plan to huck your meat 40' or more repeatedly, then you might want the Werner.
