If you make a fancy birdsmouth double paddle for your
kayak, or even a solid wood paddle from a section of closet
rod - you may want to be able to break it down for transport or storage. It will certainly fit in
your car more easily that way. Now you can gain this versatility
with one of our ferrule kits. Each allows a double paddle
to be broken in two by simply
pressing a button and twisting. Then easily re-attach
the two parts in any of three different positions - 0°, +60°, and -60°.
There are other uses for these ferrules too, such as for pushpoles. Read Rob Rohde-Szudy's article on using a stainless steel ferrule with a wood pushpole.
The CF ferrules are 1-1/8" ID
and 1-1/4" OD x 14" long. No screws are included - they can be
epoxied to the shaft of your paddle.
These ferrules weigh 5.3 oz.
