Title: D-lab mid handle
Post by: PonoBill on June 20, 2022, 07:28:04 PM
I tried to describe how I made this but a few pics probably help. The second picture shows how I cut tabs into the piece of paddle shaft so the sides of the cut are a bit past 60% of the circumference. This makes the opening a little smaller than the width of the handle so the mid-handle snaps on. The velcro stuck onto the tab is just to hold the double-sided velcro strap in place while I'm winding it on.

For the D-Lab I think this is an important modification. I can move my back hand up to the middle of the mid-handle and get a more balanced force on my arms.

I like how the cutouts prevent excessive bulking up of the grip.  What inner diameter works well for the tube?
