Re: Carbon/Kevlar vs Carbon shafts

Well I have just ordered two shafts, one full carbon and one carbon/kevlar, so I'll put them both together and report back.

Wanted: Broken paddles

Hi everyone,

I'm after broken paddles that you don't have a need for anymore so that I can replace blades/shafts and make myself a useable set. Ideally VEs, Werners or similar that have either a broken shaft or broken blade.

Let me know what you've got!

Joe

Re: Carbon/Kevlar vs Carbon shafts

Not all that is black is carbon. As far as I can tell most Werner whitewater shafts are fibreglass, not carbon. I'm fairly certain that the Werner Paddles I have (Powerhouses) have a carbon shaft, it was certainly sold as such and you can see the carbon weave. I have used Werner fibreglass shafts b...

Rainchasers contact for calibrations

Does anyone know what the best contact email is for submitting calibrations to Rainchasers? I have tried emailing hello@rainchasers.com and the email bounced back.

Thanks!

Carbon/Kevlar vs Carbon shafts

Looking at replacement paddle shafts and have seen some in Carbon/Kevlar and others in just carbon.

Can anyone tell me what the difference is between the two materials? Will one be stiffer/lighter/stronger?

Re: Do you need a backband?

what is its real purpose? For a creeker I would say that it is important as if you have a large impact going backwards the backband will break a lot easier than the cockpit rim of the boat A back-band is definitely more comfortable though, especially when you're feeling lazy and want to slouch.

Re: Do you need a backband?

I think a lot of the evidence you are giving of boats that don't need backbands are boats that have bucket seats or at least a seat with a high back - including yours. To me a bucket seat does the job of a backband, just a bit lower down. What kind of seat does Bren use? I don't think there are bett...

If you're struggling with finding the same blade to replace it with you could always replace it with a s...
