The Werner Player Straight Shaft Kayak Paddle is the most popular choice for playboaters who want a paddle that gives them power and responsiveness in a lightweight package. The mid size, down turned blades enter the water quickly for more initial power, but don't get in the way for freestyle moves. The straight shaft cuts down on weight and gives the paddle a more traditional feel. The Player has also been popular with paddlers looking for a smooth paddling blade that can also be a great river running paddle.
