For white water I have a pair of Lendal kinetic XTi which are now in their third year. They are Fantastic blades and in CF pretty much indestructible …….. but dont run them over !
The carbon shaft snapped at the varilock adjustment and the blade spigot throat split apart. The shaft has glued up fine with some epoxy (just lost the adjustment) but the blade was written off
Today I received my new ‘free’ blade, I am grateful to Danny and Mark, some excellent and helpful service to my enquiries, and the postage charges to France are fair and reasonable.
