FCS Hybrid Coil/Cord Leash
Let us know what your thoughts are on the FCS Hybrid Coil/Cord leash designed specifically for stand up paddling. This thread is complementary to the featured post of this leash on the gear section.
Try before you buy if possible! It's alot about the fit with those three brands.
Are there any specific PFD brands that you recommend that work with attaching the leash?
As far as the FCS coil leashes, I'm a huge fan; for the rivers and the waves. While paddling the rivers the leashes stay out of the water for the most part and can't snag on any rocks or wood in the water. I don't get tangled up in the leash as I sometimes do with a standard style.
For the waves the FCS coiled leash works well for me in a couple ways. I'm a complete beginner when it comes to SUP Surfing, but I charge as much as I can = I fall quite a bit right now while trying turns and other moves. When I go down the coiled leash absorbs a good deal of the shock from the waves grabbing the big board and pushing it forward. There is no more "jerk" when the leash stretches out. It also stays out of my way while paddling and getting back up on the board.
The FCS coil leash is a great piece to have in the gear bag. They have 3 different sizes for the waves you are getting after. I always keep two with me when hitting the water!
BIG DAY - Always check your leash!!
SSS for life! I have used in Hawai'i winter after winter and shared with top pros. We are all getting great results! Mahalo
