The Werner Vibe established itself as a front-runner early in testing. The paddle offers some of the best performance of any of the paddles tested with a high-functioning blade design. With 16 inches of adjustability, the paddle was easy to modify when switching between multiple users of varying heights. Plus, the Vibe's LeverLock mechanism offers efficient adjustability. Thanks to this model's smooth performance, easy adjustability, and a superior locking mechanism, this is an excellent SUP paddle at a reasonable price point.
This model, while high-performing, does feature materials that aren't as top-of-the-line as other models. If money isn't an option and you're looking for the highest quality materials, look at the Werner Trance 95. If you're on the opposite end of the spectrum and you're seeking a simpler model for less, we recommend our Best Buy, the Bullet Proof Surf Alloy.
