The PEAKUK throwline comes in 15m, 20m or 25m lengths. The one we have here is the smallest 15m version.
The throwline comes equipped with 15m of 9.5mm floating rope. Compared to the 18m of 7.5mm rope used in the HF weasel and 18m of 8mm line used within the Palm Equipment Lightning throw bags. So although it is very slightly shorter the thicker rope means that the system is much easier to handle when under load.Continue reading

Welcome to Movie Monday 29 October 2018 right here at Unsponsored.
There have been a number of new PFDs on show at Paddle Expo 2018 and Peak UK have the new River Wrap PFD. This really stands out as a pretty innovative design.
Check it out.
HF have finally gone to clean line throwbags and have removed the plastic tubing. This can be seen on the newest bag the Little Fish.
Interestingly this bag steps aways from the usual cylindrical bags we normally see.
It is World First Aid day, so it seems an appropriate time for the superb Dirty First Aid series.
We all love to kayak, sure. It has some things we love and some we hate. First Aid often becomes the elephant in the room.
When was the last time you or your peers did a course or a workshop? Do you keep ‘up to speed’ on developments?
In this series I am pleased to offer a ‘dirty’ First Aid approach. This is suited to kayakers and river users. Using a ‘find it fix it’ approach to incident care and management.
This first article will lay the foundations of rapid emergency aid. It’s a simple approach that a basic personal First Aid kit and things carried on you can deal with. Now is not the time to discuss what you should or should not carry in your kit. Read the series and make your own mind up.
It’s been a while since Shred Ready launched a new helmet for the paddlesport market. Over the last few days they have been showing parts of the new Shred Ready Zeta.
The Zeta is a peaked helmet that uses the BOA 3 retention system.
We are sorry for teasing you guys over the last week or so! Hope this new helmet makes up for it! Enter, the #zeta. We’ll share the colors this week to get you more #stoked as well. Special thanks to @kem_studio for the collaboration. Want to try it on today? We are at booth 1006 at @paddlesportsretailer. #cuzrockshurt

River signals are key to good communication on the water. But it’s important that the whole crew use and understand the same set of signals.
We’ve received this very interesting content from Graham Snape relating to his University research.
For my major project at the University of Nottingham I investigated whitewater Personal Floatation Devices (PFDs) and the level of buoyancy they provide. The aim of the project was to increase the total buoyancy available to the user in emergency situations.
