Ok to cut into this paddle?

Recommended Posts

I want to cut a trigger grip into a CCM 1060. 

Am am I going to have fibreglass fibres sticking out or strips chopping my hand up if I do this? It looks like there’s reinforcements running all up the paddle. 

Thanks!

You can take some steps to prevent any splintering:

1. After you cut, break the edges down with some grittier sandpaper, 60-100

2. Next, smooth it out with a finer sandpaper, 220 is good

3. Give it a few cotes of varnish, allowing them to dry in between.

Had great success with this. Worth the trouble!

I cut down the paddle on my True FC Pro A6.0 stick. After cutting down the paddle we used a 60 grit file to smooth the edges down. I believe we used a 120 grit file for smoother edges. While I didn't apply any sort of covering to the True stick I have used epoxy on a cut down Vaughn stick to prevent getting cut. No problems with the True stick though.

youll be fine. i did this on a sherwood 530. make sure to use sandpaper or a sander  on the cutout to smooth it out. if you want, tape over it to reasure you wont get splinters

cut it, sand it, put some tape over it.  Done it plenty of times and even with composite sticks.  I like to add a thin piece of foam for comfort purposes because I tend to feel more vibration and somewhat of a recoil effect from shots when I use a trigger grip.
