Throwline Rope Management

A great piece from Palm Equipment and Eddy Mead.

Vertical Element – Flyte Paddle

The Flyte has an aggressive catch, which rewards starting the stroke further forward but with a more gradual taper towards the neck the blade feels smoother in the later parts of the stroke. This shape has slalom inspired design DNA to its core.

This blade is made from 100% glass fibre which is pre-impregnated with toughened epoxy resin making it strong, robust and hard-wearing.

Supplied as standard with a ground glass shaft its more flexible but slightly heavier than carbon shaft. If your looking for a stiffer and lighter shaft choose the carbon version.

The Nevis is an over the head slab PFD with a number of features I have not seen before in a PFD.

The Nevis PFD is the culmination of research from UCLan, design by Barney Caulfield and testing worldwide by Bren Orton. At its core is the Delta Fit adjustment system. Two wings that wrap your ribs, reducing pressure on your abdomen, helping you to breathe and increasing mobility. Set-up to go in five fluid steps, with fewer buckles (including new load tested aircraft grade aluminium hardware). The Nevis has the world’s first Piggyback adjustable quick release chest harness, improving upon the latest research, so that releasing your harness doesn’t affect the fit of your PFD. The Nevis sets a new standard in fit and safety.
