Comments about WERNER Kalliste Carbon Kayak Paddle:
I am a bit of a paddle junkie and have tried (and purchased) far too many. The Werner Kalliste is by far my favorite. When I purchased it from EMS two years ago, I worried that the light weight would mean that it would be fragile in the water. I have paddled hundreds of miles with it each year without even the smallest scratch or chip. This paddle cuts through the water like butter and it's lightness means that I felt no fatigue even on a 30-mile kayak marathon last August. The price is high, but the quality can't be beat.
Note: Werner did come out this month with a new, lighter version (only 19 oz, versus 23.5.) It does feel amazing, but the Werner reps admit that it is much more fragile than the Kalliste. They call it their water-to-air-paddle, because you can't let it touch the ground or rocks. Consequently, I would say that the Kalliste is the perfect balance between lightness and strength.
