No this is not about the ex. ha ha.

The product. Someone mentioned using it on your paddle blade.

My question is which product is it? There are several with that name or like names that come up on Amazon.

Which is the right one? And will it discolor my blades?

The dual can kit from Lowe's is what I use. But it is by no means permanent. By the end of your trip it'll be long gone, and yes it will put a weird film over your paddle. I quit doing it TBH, and I would't waste your time unless it's for certain components.

Well let's remember. You can't put rain-X on your bike windscreen to make it shed water, so we use lemon pledge. There ya go.

It's pricey and doesn't last long, kind of like your ex.

I don't get it. What's the intended benefit of using it?

Rust-O-Leum makes it and you can buy on Amazon or Home Depot or EBay. It does leave a light film on the paddle but it makes the water run off the paddle faster as you lift it from the water on each stroke. I followed the instructions and mine has lasted quite a few trips. I don't use my paddle as a push pole or hit it on anything usually to damage the coating. You just apply more as needed per instructions.
If you constantly get wet from paddling then try it. It can't hurt. Some may no want to put it on a $300 paddle though. For $300 the water better flow off it faster than my $40 paddle with NeverWet.

If you're getting wet from paddling, you probably need to adjust where your drip rings are and/or adjust your paddling technique. How far are you dipping your paddle blades into the water? Are you submerging the base of the blades and the drip rings?

Man aint that the truth.

Just got my new paddle yesterday. It is a high end one so we will see if I have different results.

The old one was a 240 this one is a 260. Think that will help a lot.

You can try to place the drip rings anywhere you want and still get wet. It is based on the height of your torso and your arm swing. Simple science. If you need a longer paddle then buy one. It may help. There are articles on proper paddling as well to help you out. Do a search on Google.
But if you need to stop getting wet after you buy a new paddle try NeverWet as an alternative. All I know is it works. Two coats on the paddle blades didn't even dent my cans of stuff. I can use this stuff over and over and over again if I need it. It works.
