Rated 5 out of 5áby plcogan Perfect paddles
Amazing construction. Made in USA and that makes me VERY happy. Love the ability to change percentage of paddle blades - adjustable ferrule with drip rings are perfect. Lightweight, perfect balance.

áby SusanSR Great paddle for creeks
My 1st paddle was an aluminum shaft, plastic blades paddle. Which was fine, comfortable, good power. Now I've been using the Werner Camano Fiberglass Kayak Paddle for over a month. I use it with a 10' kayak. You can't go wrong with the light wt of this paddle, combo of carbon fiber shaft & fiberglass blades. Definitely more enjoyable than my 1st paddle because of the wt difference & smoothness of the paddle stroke. I've used it on still waters & on windy/choppy days (14mph) & just recently a 6 mi paddle. It's a great combo of light wt & powerful strokes. Also the adjustable features & taking the paddle apart are easy & smooth. I have a medium sized hand & the reg paddle size fits fine.

Rated 5 out of 5áby NJKayaker Great Paddle
I just got this paddle as a back up and it is quickly turning into my primarily paddle. It gives me the power in need in the current on the bay. Its a great paddle, I just wish Bean offered it in the small shaft.

Rated 5 out of 5áby JBMA Werner Camano paddle
I ordered this paddle to replace a broken Aquabound. It's lighter and with more surface area allows for a faster paddle. Most impressive was LL Bean's shipping. I recieved the paddle a day later.

Rated 5 out of 5áby KrazyKayaker Great kayak paddle
So far I have used this paddle 3 times. Each time it has been in very windy conditions, causing a lot of "chop". This paddle is solid! And love how light it is; I can paddle for hours.
Two other members in the kayak club tried it and fell in love with it...You will probably be getting some more orders soon :)

Rated 4 out of 5áby Scottns Werner Camano Paddle
I ordered my paddle 6-15-11 Wednesday at 4:00pm hoping to have it for Father's Weekend and I must commend LL Bean on promptly processing the order which I received on Friday 12:00pm 6-17-11.
Compared to my old Carlise Magic RS paddle the Camano is very well made and extremely light weight.
I can not wait to try it out!

Rated 5 out of 5áby TCPaddler Werner Camano Paddle
Once you pick up this paddle you won't want to put it down. Then you'll want to get in the nearest kayak and start paddling. It won't matter what size or shape the boat is, because this stick will make it a speedster. I paddled 5 miles up stream and then back on the Silver River, Fl and flew. I was constantly told by my fellow paddlers to slow down. I never felt like I was putting that much effort into my strokes. Thanks LL Bean for providing a great product. We bought another one for my husband. So, now he can keep up!

Rated 4 out of 5áby BlackRat Windy kayaking
I tried kayaking today, I really should have stayed off the main lake, but I put my spray skirt on and went into 2 1/2 foot waves and 25-35 mph wind. I had to finally give up, when the wind got up to 35 mph in one section I could barely keep the kayak going either with or into the wind. I have both this Werner Camano 230 cm and a Werner Shagit FG IM 240 cm. Today I had the Werner Camano 230 cm and at times I felt that if I had not had the lighter paddle with larger paddle blades I would have lost control of the kayak in the high winds and waves. It performed marviously. I just wish LL Bean sold 240 cm paddles. I got it when they had the LL Bean credit card 20% off sale. It was a good buy.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Yasukuni Super Paddle
Bought for myself a year ago. Super paddle, light as a feather and provides a very powerful stroke. Do yourself a favor and try one. A paddle is not the place to economize when kayaking.
