After reading about my current Sidekick paddles on the Werner website, it seems (given the specs) that I need to be looking for an alternative paddle!
The best choice for strong well conditioned play boaters!
The Werner bent-shaft paddles have been great for us since they were introduced. The carbon shafts seem next to indestructible and the blades last a long time usually wearing down to a smaller size over long periods of use.
Fluid Kayaks is headed by Celliers Kruger, one of South Africa’s most accomplished whitewater paddlers, who happened to be a mechanical engineer with an excellent understanding of fluid dynamics. He is the Managing Director of Fluid and also the designer of Fluid’s products.
Celliers also kindly agreed to take part in the Unsponsored Q&A series.
