Padz Mini Cell For Paddles

Anyone used this to improve the grip on their paddle? I'm thinking of buying the ATX bentshaft and like it a lot, but find the shaft diameter a little small for my hands.

I would try to build up with tape first and see if that works for you. Have seen some people be successful with electrical tape.

Athletic tape works very well for this application. You can buy it at any Walgreens etc.

I've used the Padz on my creeking paddles for years- I highly recommend them, because they provide better grip or shock absorption than any tape would give, and it will last longer too.

I only put it on my power hand, though, because I want the shaft to rotate quickly on my left hand. If making the shaft wider is what you're looking for, then you might not choose to do the same. But either way, I like the product....

Nah, unless you're ambidexterous, you gotta keep the right hand for the mouse.

Sorry to lead the thread astray, but if I didn't someone else surely would have. Personally, I don't need any extra grip on my Woody.

Dolt!
