Level Six Ace & King Double Stitched Rand Skirts

We haven’t had much Level Six gear in for review at Unsponsored but from the odd bits we’ve seen, got hold of, and used it has been pretty good stuff.

The Canadian company have updated their range and this includes double stitching the rand on the Ace and King spray skirts. Which we think look very interesting.

Palm Impact Spray Skirt 2017 – First Look

A surprise parcel landed at Unsponsored HQ this week, a brand new 2017 Palm Impact spray skirt. We’ve had an older one of these in at the HQ a couple of years back and it proved to be an awesome skirt.

Spray Deck Skirt Modification

After reading through some old threads on liquid latex, I found some good reviews on the stuff but no pictures of how people got on, so I thought I’d share with you the pics of my repaired spray deck. Time for a little spray deck modification.

Immersion Research have made some series tweaks to their Royale spraydeck. Here’s what they have done:

Palm Impact Spraydeck – Review

I’ve been using Palm’s Impact spraydeck for a few months now and am ready to feedback on its performance to date. Thanks to Palm Equipment and Northshore Watersports (for piggy backing delivery) I have a Palm Impact that replaces the Extreme as Palm’s top end neoprene bungee deck. First impressions are good. The deck looks and feels solid. It is well made and the black/lime colour scheme is bang on trend!

On the outside there is a protective 4mm Armortex reinforcement to increase the robustness of the deck. This should make the Impact of interest to those who put their decks through a rough time.
