Perception Paddle & Rod Leash


The Perception Paddle & Rod Leash for Kayaks is a must-have accessory for any water adventure. It securely tethers your paddle, fishing rod, or other accessories, giving you a worry-free trip on the water.

Convenience is key with this leash. It conveniently clips to your pfd, kayak, or SUP, keeping your items close at hand. No need to worry about losing your gear in the water anymore.

The adjustable Velcro attachment loop is designed to accommodate items of various sizes and dimensions. Whether you have a small paddle or a large fishing rod, this leash has got you covered.

The leash is made from nylon webbing with a bungee core. This ensures that the leash stays retracted and out of the way when not in use, saving valuable space on your kayak.

When fully extended, the leash measures 45 inches (114 cm) long when slack. This gives you plenty of room to maneuver your gear without feeling restricted.

The Perception Paddle & Rod Leash is perfect for kayaking enthusiasts. Whether you are a beginner or an experienced kayaker, this leash will undoubtedly enhance your water adventure.

Now, let's answer a couple of frequently asked questions about this product:

- What is the stretched length?

The stretched length of the leash is normally 48 inches, expanding to 67 inches when fully extended. This provides ample room for movement and flexibility.

- Could I use this as a dog leash? I'm looking for a way to keep my dog attached to me while kayaking.

While the Perception Paddle & Rod Leash is designed for securing paddles and fishing rods, it is not recommended for use as a dog leash. We suggest opting for a hands-free dog leash that is specifically designed for kayaking. These leashes come with stretchy cords, more durable clips, and handholds on both ends. Plus, you can use it as a dog leash on land as well!
