The primary benefit to the Bent Shaft is how it naturally aligns your wrists in a more ergonomic position, decreasing your wrist angle, putting less wear and fatigue on the wrists. As we over exert and fatigue it is natural for technique to break down and a loose grip to become a tight one. Plus, many paddlers just like the confidence of all four fingers in contact with their bottom hand and hold on too tight without knowing better. As we tighten our grip for whatever reason, the hand to wrist alignment contorts into an uncomfortable position. The blade also extends further than a straight shaft, giving you a longer power phase of the stroke.
