The Werner Sherpa is an exceptionally smooth and responsive river running design. The mid size blades are evenly balanced to create a clean catch that is powerful and smooth through out the entire stroke. If you like running rivers and ripping up a wave or two, the Sherpa is a great choice.
The 4 piece version uses a simple push button design to lock both the blades and shaft in place. This paddle works really well as a main paddle, especially if your traveling and flying, but also as a very solid emergency paddle. The 4 part design allows you to fit this paddle into the back of even the smallest play designs. This paddle can also be set to either left or right hand and has a 45 degree feather.
