Re: Ainsworth touring paddles.. Thoughts?

Sadly no one in the northwest seem to stock ve paddles. This is my biggest issue.. Spending so much money on something I can't hold/ try before buying

Re: Ainsworth touring paddles.. Thoughts?

I've got the foam blades for my river paddle. One piece carbon shaft so hopefully it'll stand the test of time. It's how much to spend in struggling with. Are the £400 paddles worth the money for general touring use?

Re: Ainsworth touring paddles.. Thoughts?

Took the club Werner tybees out today. Very impressed with them for a " beginner" paddle. Might be hard pushed spending more on a pair...

Re: Ainsworth touring paddles.. Thoughts?

Thanks for the replies. Interesting thoughts on the locking system as the I though the Werner one was the best. Biggest issue I'm having is holding a pair. Lot of money to spend on something it's difficult to hold first

Ainsworth touring paddles.. Thoughts?

So I'm after a new set of touring paddles and should be able to get a pair of the carbon fibre Ainsworth for about £200 Only problem is finding reviews/ opinions is proving impossible. Does anyone have any thoughts or reviews? Positive or negative. Any other recommendations also appreciated. Thanks ...

Re: Boat and kit storage

If it's a plastic boat hang it on the wall. I used some straps and swing hooks from b&q. That was until I got more boats so had to build racking for it

Maybe change the thread title to read expedition and competition. Points out that the above information is clearly copied and pasted from elsewhere .

Re: My fellow racers, I call upon your opinion.

Generally longer boats are faster. The weight difference won't make a massive difference.

I'd say over a short distance/ winding course the wwr but that extra 4ft on the k1 should soon see it taking the lead otherwise.
