Great with a Packraft
After all of two sessions with my new Werner Strike paddle, I’m happy. It’s great for forward stroke in my packraft—feels like the forward offset blade is contributing to a nice early catch, and the asymmetrical blade shape makes the blade feel stable and planted even if it’s not perfectly vertical. When I’m doing sculling strokes or transitioning from draw to C-stroke, I realize I am still adapting to the paddle. I’ll check in with another review once I have some more experience with the paddle, but for now, I’m delighted with the paddle. Typical Werner quality.
