Hey all,  not to sure how many of the peeps here are out in the cold but,  Here in Jersey get mighty chilly,  last night was 20 degrees and the paddle gets stiff in these temps. So i was thinking about making a paddle warming pouch.  Just keep it in there when not in use.

Put the paddle in your pants, just dont walk away too far..... can you imagine what your friends will think if they see you doing that and the scope slews...... Thats talent!

Well I am glad someone appreciates my humor.... However, If you make one of those heaters. Let me know how it turns out. I could use one too. My controller gets sluggish in the cold as well.
