Waterstick Paddle

Posted by Howard on Aug 1, 2004

I have been considering the waterstick paddle and wanted to see if anybody on the forum had experience with these paddles and could give me their opinions.

Most of my paddling is with a west river 180 used primarily for exercise....4.5 miles every other morning in a little less than an hours time.

Currently using a grey owl, tempest.

My questions....is the waterstick a good quality paddle? is their a big advantage in the bent shaft paddle or is a straight shaft stick ok? finally, would i expect much of a difference over what i am paddling?

I have also looked at the Werner Kalliste. can anybody compare werner with waterstick?
