Werner Sherpa or Sherpa Carbon??

Any advice on the differences outside of the obvious full carbon and is it worth going Sherpa Carbon over regular Sherpa. Plan on doing whitewater up to Class III for now as well as slow moving rivers, some flat water and coastal play (no rocks). Also if it helps I will be using it with a Dagger Katana 10.4. Thanks for the insight.

The main advantages of carbon is it will be slightly lighter and slightly stiffer (which may not be an advantage depending). My advice is save the money and buy the fiberglass version. Also, if you buy a bent shaft version, the shaft will be carbon, so only the blades will differ.

KSC is on the money. I've got 2 cheap fiberglass sherpas and I prefer them, (especially in low water) to my other carbon paddles.
There is a small stiffness and weight advantage, but in a Katana 10.4 only a real pro could appreciate the difference. Save the difference and get a cheap breakdown.
