DLeashes Review

Malibu Pro Staff member Donald Drabek has spent a lifetime on the water or in the woods. It was that experience that led him to start DLeashes.  Becoming frustrated with the choices of items like call lanyards and game straps, Donald learned the process of braiding parachute cord from a buddy who had been in the Navy.  Once he got into kayaking he started making his own paddle leashes as well as camera, rod and Boga Grip straps.

One of the most important pieces of safety equipment, in my opinion, a paddle leash is a must.  Let’s face it, you lose your paddle, you’re up the creek without a……. well you get the idea.  I recently broke my paddle leash and remembered than when we started the Team Malibu site, there was a guy on there talking about paddle leashes.  I finally made contact with Donald and he made up a few of his leashes for me. All I can say is “WOW”.  Exactly what I wanted.

Quality work here, no doubt about it. A brass clip to secure it to your kayak.


A sliding clamp, with rubber heat shrink.


This allows for a secure fit to your paddle.

I really like this type of paddle leash, strong and sturdy you could use this to help reenter your kayak in deep water. It could also come in handy while camping. If you needed to rig something together in an emergency, you would have plenty of para cord to work with. With a breaking strength around 3000 pounds (if I remember right) the uses in an emergency are endless.

Donald also makes some quality game call lanyards as well as game straps.


Available in multiple colors, Donald stands behind all his products 100%. If interested send him an email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
