Werner Corryvreckan Premium Tour Glass Blade Straight Shaft Sea Kayak Paddle

Werner Corryvreckan Premium Tour Glass Blade Straight Shaft Sea Kayak Paddle

$ 285.00 USD

Introduction

The Werner Corryvreckan paddle is the largest of Werner's two solid laminate modern style (not "low angle") sea kayak paddle blades. It's a good blade size for large framed well conditioned kayakers who weigh about 180 lbs or more. (For a similar but smaller paddle, see the Werner Shuna). The Corryvreckan paddle is available in a choice of carbon or fiberglass blades, straight or bent shaft.

Description

In general, short, wide blades like the Corryvreckan's are more forgiving (less prone to diving) than long, narrow blades (i.e. as in "low angle" paddles). This makes paddles like the Corryvreckan easier to use when learning rolling, sculling and other combination strokes such as for leaned turns, and the Werner Corryvreckan 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 surf or high winds, you can really feel the difference that a forgiving blade makes. For recreational kayakers, the advantages of short wide blades may not be as noticeable as when rolling etc., but the benefits are still there.

If buying your first paddle or a spare paddle, the fiberglass Corryvreckan is a good choice, but when you really know what paddle you like (the blade size and style, length, etc.), it's worth getting an all carbon paddle. The Corryvreckan is available in carbon or fiberglass laminate. Carbon paddles are lighter which makes them less fatiguing to use. When you look at the numbers for their weights it doesn't seem like a big difference, but when you pick them up and swing the paddles as if you were using them in a forward stroke, you can feel the difference right away.

Corryvreckan Glass comes standard with Werner's Adjustable Ferule with internal splines that allow you to set it at any feather angle from 0 - 90 degrees left or right in 15 degree increments.
