Araldite, all I've ever used . You can soften it if need be with hot air gun or even a hair dryer should you ever need to get handle or blade off again.

Same. Any 5 minute clear epoxy (2 components) will work.

KeNalu's are designed to be glued with hot glue and I'd recommend using that.. Any brand of hot glue will do.

$20 from bunnings will get you a hot glue gun and a bunch of hot glue sticks.
Well worth it - you'll find yourself using it for more than just paddles.

Avacodo i have a spare craft glue gun with sticks you can use for free, you located in the Sydney Area.
I have a bic, glass paddle with a plastic handle thats spinning around, should i use the two part apoxy (araldite). Also my inflatible deck pad is ripped a slight bit on the side, is it worth sticking that down with apoxy or ripping it off, picture coming soon.

I bought a craft glue gun and used the glue sticks that came with it. However, It has not been strong enough and the handle twists off every month or so. I used the gorilla glue hot glue in a hot glue gun and have found that much more durable on my kenalu paddle.
