Werner Paddles Werner Paddles is halting shipping and production of the Werner Rio 4-Piece paddle. In field conditions where the paddle is exposed to extreme heat and humidity it may swell, causing an imperfect fit between the blades and the shaft.

They are offering dealers a full credit on any stock they might have left and consumers who purchased the paddle will receive a replacement directly from Werner. They should contact Werner for shipping information.

Werner will be replacing consumer's Rio 4-piece paddle blades with Premium Sherpa blades and covering all freight costs.

The Rio 4-Piece Roundup does not impact any Werner Premium 4-Piece paddles since the production process and material are completely different. Additionally, this does not impact the Rio Straight Shaft paddle.
