Staff Review: "The go to river running blade, the powerhouse sets a high bar. Large blades provide a ton of power through the stroke and a ton of support when bracing. Super durable! 5 stars" Forrest
Guide & ACA Instructor
Trusted on the hardest runs in the world and those firing up the hardest line on their local run are the Werner river running paddles. The Powerhouse and its smaller counterpart the Sherpa offer Bomber reliability, tested and proven where it counts.

With a more pronounced tip and more surface area above the center of the blade, this design is optimized for a better forward stroke. So for the core elements of river running, pulling yourself through or over holes and drops, breaking in and out of current and ferrying across current, these blades are your best choice. The best white water boaters in the world believe in our designs. Werner's white water designs have a slight dihedral for smooth vertical maneuvering strokes. Note we also flatten the back face spine to aid in these strokes.
BOMBER = Reliable. Werner's legendary bomber reputation has given paddlers decades of confidence on the most extreme rivers across the world. With utmost attention to detail, design and craftsmanship, Werner shafts are all handmade at their production facility in Sultan WA, USA. Werner is able to place our choice of fiberglass and carbon materials exactly where it's needed. The result is an unmatched combination of flex, weight and of course strength. With advanced design and materials in the blades and shafts, look no further than Werner to see who the leaders in white water are. Whether you go with straight shaft, or neutral bent, Werner shafts have a unique feel. Notice the texture, the indexing. Designed to give you more comfort and control and to be able to feel the precision of every one of your strokes.
