The Werner Soul Adjustable 2 Piece Stand Up Paddle uses a very lightweight and buoyant fiberglass blade with a foam core for a more effortless and efficient paddle stroke. The foam core floats the blade at the end of the stroke so it pops out of the water, requiring minimal effort to pull it up and swing the paddle back around. The blade's stiff and lightweight fiberglass outer material and progressive rectangular shape provide excellent and consistent power transfer, and the narrower blade shape makes it possible to paddle closer to the board for improved efficiency and comfort. The high performance carbon fiber and fiberglass shaft is also very lightweight and efficient, and works together with the buoyant blade to help you go faster and farther with less fatigue. The paddle offers three different blade sizes: the small size is suited to smaller paddlers, those who prefer a higher paddling cadence or need to go easy on their joints a medium size that fits the widest range of paddlers and a full size for larger, well conditioned paddlers. There are also three different adjustable length shaft options so you can customize the fit to your specific height, varying conditions, and preferred paddling style. The paddle can be broken down into two pieces for easier transport and storage.
