WARNING for the ID types: This is an "engineering heavy" review of the Dagger Handle Plate used on the Dagger Axis kayak line.
This part was designed by Evan Solida and Mark (Snowy) Robertson to conceal the rope and bungee that make the handle retractable. My job in this project was to make sure it also acted as a SOLID lift point for the boat.
