I have a Werner Shuna paddle (straight shaft) that I bought used and I’m curious as to to the length of it. “just measure it” you say ? Being that the paddle ends are not square - where are the start and end points of the measurements? I looked on several paddle sites and could not find the answer.
Paddle length typically refers to overall length. Stand the paddle so that the shaft is vertical and drop a tape measure from the highest point. If the paddle feels good while paddling, why does knowing the length matter?
Very simple. I may want to order another new paddle and this one feels good. What size should I order then? That’s why I need to measure.
inches x 2.54 = cm
Paddle lengths sometimes vary slightly from stated size. My 215 cm Shuna actually measures 216. Why not bring tape measure to local shop & check them out & you’ll be sure of what you get.
