New Gear Purchase - A Werner Skagit Paddle!

A Werner Skagit FG IM straight shaft 240 paddle... to be exact! ;-) Picked this beauty up on Friday at a 20% off sale going on at my neighborhood REI.

Regular readers of Durhamblogger may remember in my post "Kayak Pick-Up from Frog Hollow Outdoors," that my recent purchase of another kayak necessitated the purchase of another paddle! Funny how that works out - isn't? Werner paddles are arguably one of the finest brands on the market... and I look forward to putting it through some "paces" soon!

  1. Adjustable ferrule! Those are the best! Enjoy!

  2. I put my new Werner Skagit paddle through its paces during my recent Island Creek paddling adventure. What a difference a lighter and better constructed paddle makes in reducing your fatigue!
