What to do with a hairline crack paddle shaft blade side?
It's about 3cm long.
I'm in Sri Lanka so limited, and didn't bring any repair kit.
Shaft is 100% carbon, tapered.
Any suggestions how to avoid I'm gonna break the shaft?
Thanks a million,
Duct tape or gorilla tape happy hol
I'd suggest some plastic plumbing tube, about 300mm long, and gaffer tape or electrical tape.
Slit the tube lengthways into 2 pieces and tape both slit lengths along the tube 150mm either side of the crack.
Buy a cheap hacksaw when you buy the tube so you can slit it.
Given that the tube is tapered, you may have to cut the tube with a V in it so it doesnt overlap when you sleeve it onto the shart
Thanks guys...the plumbing tape works a treat ... touch wood
