  • Exterior carabiner park for quick access when needed.
  • Floatation built into the bag keeps it afloat if detached.
  • High visibility reflective strip.

Some Tow Line Comparison Notes between Sea Tec and Dynamic Pro

  • In 35’, both Dynamic Pro  and Sea Tec use the H2prO Line
  • Dynamic Pro 50’ version uses a lighter weight, and more dynamic polypropylene and it not available in the Sea Tec.
  • Both are approximately the same physical size around the body / waist, however the Dynamic unfurl to almost flat, proving little in-water friction / drag (drogueing) whereas the Sea Tec will “bucket” and potentially “drogue” the victim in a situation where the towing paddler jettisons the victim.
  • While paddling, the Dynamic is best re-stuffed / repacked while sitting and atop a spray skirt as table.
  • The Sea Tec has a pouch / sack in which to re pack the rope while on water and thus suitable for not only sea kayaking, but also stand up paddle boarding.
