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.

Here in the states there are two types of hot glue. One is white and the other is yellow.
The yellow is the the one to get to maintain kenalu paddles. Way better than the white. Glue gun and hair dryer combo is the best.
