Decided to finaly get one of these based on the conclusion that a multiple day paddle trip could be potentialy disastrous if a paddle gets swept away in some serious river current, or goes somewhere you can't follow.
Tried it out on a 30 mile 2-day paddle, and it worked great. Stays out of the way due to the coil, and retracts to a nice and short length. Comes with an awesome pouch with a carabiner so you can just throw that right onto your yak cordage for when you're not using the leash.

I put the leash onto my yak, but it has a great wrist strap that works really well too.

If you worry about getting tangled in a roll or fall-out, the leash could easily be cut through with a knife.

We never paddle without attaching a paddle leash to our paddles. The leash is a small price to pay to protect a large investment we make in our paddles. The only thing we would improve is to make the paddle leash a little longer as it is a little tight for one of our kayaks.

      Comments about NRS Paddle Leash Coil:

      Being a fan of the clean deck thought i'd try this as an option to the second paddle. I'm not saying there isn't a time for the backup paddle, but... I found I liked this thing quite a lot. Was worried it would be annoying and in the way but I quickly forgot it was there. The coil gives it good length without being all over the place. I've taken dumps in NC breakers and a cranky Lake Erie and I'm not saying don't hang onto your paddle (!) but it was reassuring. When I cowboyed back in it was easier and faster having my hands free. Pumping, helping others, taking pics same thing. So so far I find it a nice option.

              Q:

              I bought this paddle leash but I'm not really sure how to use it. I assume that the end with the foam and the snap goes around the paddle, but it does not seem to be snug on the paddle shaft. Is this right. Where is the best place to place the other end. I would think on the boat somewhere rather than the wrist? I thought there would be some instructions provided.

                Hi Chuck,
                You are right, no instructions. I interpreted it the other way--padding around my wrist and the shorter length of velcro around the paddle shaft. I want the paddle attached to me if i get separated from the boat. There is actually a way to 'swim' with the paddle while in your life jacket while floating on your back--not something i want to try :)
                but i think you can do it the other way too--attach the padded part to your nearest safety line, especially in calm water, you can let your paddle sit in the water with your hands free and not have the paddle drift away.
                Hope that helps,
                bob

                Hey Chuck,
                Actually, the foam part goes around your right wrist and the other end goes around the middle of the paddle. The leash is not designed to connect to the boat.

                It straps to the center of the paddle shaft and just floats some. On the other end, I like to secure to my vest versus my wrist and do sometimes secure to the boat. It just depends on the situation. As long as the paddle doesn't get away from you when you release it, I would just attach where it is comfortable and out of your way.

                Hello,
                The paddle leash attaches to the paddle and the other end to the boat or wrist.
                I hope this helps you.
                Take care,
                your friendly fellow paddler.

                The foam is for your wrist and the snap is for attaching to your kayak.

                Right, the foam covered strap goes around the paddle. You have to fiddle
                around a little to get it relatively tight.
                I secure the other end on the fore deck of the boat- on the stretchy cord
                decking- far enough away that the leash
                doesn't get in the way of paddling- but not so far that if the paddle blew
                out of my hands that I couldn't reach
                the end of the leash. Hope that helps.

                We attach one end to the paddle and the other end to the boat. Try attaching to the deck rigging. Don’t worry if its not snug, I actually prefer that it’s not snug as it will allow more movement with your paddle when using different strokes etc.

                Just to review, this leash is not intended for whitewater.  As a touring leash the padded portion of the strap goes around your wrist and the smaller loop around the waist of the paddle.  In my opinion this is fine for flat water touring.  When I lived in Hawaii I added another length of cord and tethered the leash to the front of my boat.  In this way if I came off the boat in a surf landing all I had to do was hole onto the paddle and the boat would float straight with the current instead of being dragged sideways if I had tethered the leash at the cockpit.  Hope this helps.
