What is best way to mark your name on a black paddle?


Just bought a new black Werner Shogun paddle and wondering the best approach to putting my contact info on the paddle? Any ideas from mtnbuzzers?

I've got hot pink duct tape on the shaft and then wrote on that. Keeps the men away from "borrowing" my guidestick.

I have a black guide stick and I bought a white paint pen at an art store. Works great and doesn't rub off

I would think about any cheap nail polish would do the trick.

You just dropped a few hundred on a nice shiny new paddle, get some stickers cut out that have your name and number on em. I'd do either a dark gray or something that matchs the Werner text. Get some extra made since they will probably wear off over time. It'll look a hell of a lot nicer than some hack ass chicken sctratch.

On my black paddles:

I bumblebee those things all over the shaft and blade with yellow electrical tap. It is the only way to see your black paddle when it is stuffed under a log jam.

Use a black sharpie to write your name and number all over the yellow bumblebee stripes that you put on your blades. Works great. It looks good too
