New Color Options for Werner Premium Paddles

Posted by on September 14, 2012

Werner has included two new color options for their Premium paddles (carbon shaft, fiberglass blades) on their website. Wave-Jade and Wave-Azul now join Red, Amber (yellow), and Orange on the color pallet!

I think the wave design is really cool and I love the soft colors, especially Jade (I’m a sucker for anything green!). However, it’s important to remember that the color of your paddle blades is a critical factor when it comes to your kayak’s visibility to other craft on the water. Often times, a passing craft will not even see your kayak but will pick up on the movement and flashing of your paddle as you cruise along. This is at least one reason why red, amber, and orange have been the mainstay color options. If you like the new wave designs as much as I do then I’d recommend attaching a small strip of retro-reflective tape to either side of each blade to help increase your visibility.

Happy Paddling!
