Carlisle Magic Poly Paddle Frogma brought this to my attention this morning so I am passing it along to you.

It was posted on the US Coast Guards Boating Safety website.

Carlisle has identified a potential safety issue with some Magic Poly and Magic Plus kayak paddles manufactured between October 2007 and April 2008.  Affected "Magic Poly", and "Magic Plus" paddles may break at the base of the blade due to a defect in workmanship.  Carlisle Paddle Gear will replace defective paddles at no cost to you.  For details on how to determine if your paddle is affected, and instructions regarding replacement of defective paddles, refer to the "Important Safety Notice" found in the lower right hand corner of their website homepage at www.carlislepaddles.com, or telephone (800) 343-1555.

PS - Bragging point: Frogma said I was professional. I'm all giddy with excitement... Is that a professional thing to say? Not sure... I'm pleased. Yeah, that's better.
