Hey guys and gals, my paddle broke at the end of the shaft! Is this able to be fixed? Appreciate any feedback.

Cheers

I am sure you could carbon it back together bit don't think it would be worth it, you can always just buy a new blade which will be cheaper than buying a full new paddle. We make our ONE paddles in the same factory and use the same shaft so our blades would fit on no worries.

I hate throwing stuff out......yes a new blade is the simplest......but if the old blade was put on with hot glue it may be possible to remove the end of the shaft that is imbedded in the blade. Even if it came out in pieces could be done. If it is epoxied in probably you will destroy the blade getting the old shaft out.....but still, perhaps not impossible ....just very difficult. Finally if there is enough of the old shaft still embedded it could be repaired. Need a 5 inch segment of carbon shaft, cut a slot in it length wise so that when compressed will slide inside the shaft and the end of the shaft in the blade. Take apart epoxy, put back together and it will be a bit heavier but solid. Remember to cut the ends of the inner sleeve at an angle to reduce a circumferential stress point.
