Kayak Paddle Blade Color

Recommended Posts

I am considering painting the blades of my kayak paddle yellow or orange for better safety and visibility, they are currently black. I run a orange flag so I am seen better, my Nucanoe Frontier is camo. My question is has anyone done this and if so how did the paint hold up? I figured on using something like the Rustoleum spray paint for plastics.

You could put orange reflective tape.

Tape will hold up better than paint on the blades....

I agree that paint isn't gonna do it; however, you may...*may* be able to

do the PVC color trick using industrial dye and a clear PVC cleaner bottle.

 

i've had mixed results doing so making a black dye, but I think i got my 

mixture a little messed up. I'm not entirely certain what plastics a paddle

blade is made of, so this could be a dead-on-arrival idea.
