Various experiments in assistive kayak paddling grip designs. These are a continuing work in progress and none of these work as well as I would like. Some of the designs may be effective for casual paddling but I don't think they're adequate for open ocean kayaking. They are designed to fit Werner carbon shaft paddles.
I used 1 inch webbing and Velcro OneWrap for convenience. Eventually I expect the designs will use sewn straps that are easier to tighten or integrate into gloves.
Original design files are available on Onshape.

Some of these designs will need to be oriented before printing. Some will require specific filaments to work.
