Re: Drysuit tape - is it worth buying your own?

Just a thought, I am pretty sure Typhoon have a 3 year possibly longer warranty so I would get it back to them, anything you bodge/ repair yourself will null and void the warranty. They do a fantastic job and a very fast turn around time.

Re: Difference between Stout + connect river

The main differences are the Seats the Connect is the older style not as supportive as the Stout. I really like the Stout seats and find it more comfortable and more supportive so I can get a much comfier tighter fit with it, I also added quite a few foam shims under the seat to raise my hips inline...

Re: 9-foot creeker comparison

I liked the 9r, fast responsive super fun but some found it to be a bit lively, it suits me also the Ripper is fun as you can tailsquirt your hearts content down the rapid, splat anything. the best is try to paddle them and find out which works best for you. You also should ask yourself how many rac...

Re: Do you need a backband?

By loosing the backrest off and moving the footrest slightly forwards encourages you to engage your core muscles, better posture and in turn better technique. My back band is loose for most things including creeking and playboating, if I get tired I can adjust it in to give more support, this idea h...

Re: Axiom 8.5 advice

Hi Jim, I found at 80kg the 8.5 was a bit low in the water when running 4/5 and the 9 worked mug better but it did need extra padding out to get the most out of the oat, I raised my seat with extra foam to bring my hips in line with the cockpit rim and this made a huge difference and improvement on ...

Re: Are there any decent electic pumps for inflatable SUPs?

Re: Casual River Rafting??

Could be worth chatting to the rafting centres(CIWW, Tryweryn, HPP) as they sell off their older rafts from time to time, this would give you a much comfier option than a c1 kneeling position and without the need of strapping people to tubes altho very popular with the Russians! You could look at an...

Re: in need of pyranha s6 parts or similar

The footrest was just foam so that should be easy to shape, seat wise is your shell drilled for one? Or was it a c1? If the latter I know White Water Consultancy have some riot power seats that should go in, then you won't need ratchets or back band.

Re: Any Li'l Joe owners out there?

There should be two slots either side of the seat where the hip pads go and the threaded backing plate sits in this, from memory you should be able to put it in from the back of the seat tower and then the screws attach through the hip pads and any shims needed.
