Introduction

The Pack-Tour M is based on the Werner Shuna which is our best selling high angle sea kayaking paddle. 4-piece system easily breaks down to stow away when your pack raft is deflated and your journey finds you back on your feet. And an adjustable shaft system allows for on the go length changes for the variety of conditions. 4-piece breakdown has joints at the center and both blades. This system is proven for decades, is easy to use and has a precise fit. Adjustable shaft changes paddle length from (200cm or 215cm) OR (210cm or 225cm) with a simple, tight fitting push button system. Adjusts 2 specific lengths for open water or tighter moving water rivers and streams.

Its mid-sized blades make it a good choice for a wide range of paddlers. The slight dihedral shape keeps the paddle moving through the water smoothly by directing water evenly off both sides of the paddle, reducing both flutter and fatigue, which translates to a more efficient day on the water.

The Pack-Tour M is designed for those looking to paddle open water and tighter moving water streams and rivers. Fiberglass blades and carbon shaft keep weight to a minimum, for when counting ounces is a priority. Although strong for its intended use, this is not a whitewater paddle. Whitewater paddles are stronger but also heavier. Whitewater pack rafters should look to our 4-piece river running paddles such as the 4-pc Shuna.

Description

In general, short, wide blades like the Pack-Tour M are more forgiving (less prone to diving) than long, narrow blades (i.e. as on low angle paddles). This makes paddles like the Pack-Tour M easier to use when learning rolling, sculling and other combination strokes. The Pack-Tour M paddle is especially popular with advanced paddlers because the rougher the conditions you paddle in, the more you need to use strokes where short wide blades shine. When you are trying to spin your kayak around between wave crests in high winds or currents, you can really feel the difference that a forgiving blade makes.

Always wash the pieces of your Pack-Tour M with water prior to reassembling. Dirt and debris from the hiking trail or camp can foul its precise fit. If pieces seem difficult to assemble, repeat washing. Do not use lubricants.
