Werner Sho-Gun


Considered by many as the best white water paddle available. The Werner Sho-Gun combines the legendary Werner river running blade shape with their cutting edge foam core technology.
With an asymmetric dihedral shape, the Sho-Gun has a stable, smooth paddling stroke combined with a large surface area- ideal for strong paddlers requiring powerful strokes.

For those looking for the same design and construction but with a mid-sized blade then look at the Werner Stikine.
The foam core provides buoyancy to the blades, providing much more stability on braces and confidence when rolling.
Unique to Werner’s Ultimate Range, the Sho-Gun features reinforcement channels on the rear face of the blades. This increases strength and allows a quieter catch on paddle placement.
