This is the second one that I have purchased for my SOT kayaks. Who wants to worry about blowing up an inflatable paddle float when struggling to remount their kayak in rough water? Not me. These are always ready and can't leak. The buckle also contains a built-in whistle for when I get safety inspection.
I'm one of those kayakers who can't have too much safety equipment on board. I have the rescue step for reentering the kayak after capsize but wasn't comfortable relying solely on the step. Found this at ACK and I'm impressed with it's quality and workmanship. Now I'm confident that using this paddle float in conjunction with the rescue step will dramatically improve my chances of reentering the kayak in most any conditions. I've got a Hobie Mirage drive so seldom use my paddle and leave this float attached to the paddle secured on the gunnel of the kayak. In addition to its intended use it is a bright yellow in color and could concievably be used to signal a rescuer if needed. Great product and received quickly from ACK.
