So what makes this paddle the ultimate paintless dent removal tap down hammer? How can a paddle make any difference compared to a regular hammer?
Well let's start at how solid the wood is. This Dent Time paddle is hand made and carved in Guam. It's a very dense hardwood called "Efit" wood. Used on many upscale homes and hotels for flooring in the Polynesian islands.
Compared to oak, Efit wood is much heavier and durable. This also helps with your strikes so you are using less swing with more force. There are 3 strike zones on this paddle (Please see diagram). This allows you to have various impact power depending where on the paddle you strike.
Leather Pad: Personally I prefer a padded paddle. So I added a high grain and durable leather pad to absorb the strikes against almost any type of knock down you will own. It absorbs vibration and dampens the contact sound. However if you like a more juddering and a harder strike you can use the opposite side and whack away till your heart desires.
Strike Zone 1: is the top area of the paddle to almost mid area of the paddle. In this zone, you’ll find using the end will be for lighter taps that don’t need a lot of force.Strike Zone 2: is the mid area of the paddle. The sweet spot. A more concentrated strike that has more power because the center and weight is balanced offering a more solid connection with the paddle and tap down.Strike Zone 3: is the bottom area of the paddle and offers the heaviest strikes for crowns, stubborn highs and aluminum panels that demand more force.
These strike zones really make a difference when knocking down. Not to mention more accuracy for those really reaching and awkward positions.
The Grip: It took some time figuring out a comfortable grip. I finally came out with a layered ribbed grip that is so pleasant in the hand you'll actually won’t want to put it down. It feels very natural holding it. A non slip and soft touch grip you’ll enjoy without hand fatigue for hours. It's a universal grip whether you are left or right handed as well. Every Dent Time paddle is unique. You won’t see the same exact grain pattern or color in each paddle. Making it a personal and distinctive paddle you’ll own and have for years.
Guarantee: My personal guarantee you'll love it or you're money back. If you don't feel this paddle doesn't live up to your standards, send it back. I'll refund your money 100% no questions asked.
Best videos I have seen
1991, Myke's step-dad introduced him to PDR. As Myke slowly became better, he kept at it. With no internet, forums or other PDR techs to compare, Myke pushed himself to get better at paintless dent removal. In 2001, Dent Time was created after Myke and his step father parted ways. His mother once told him when she was alive, "you must learn how to become a good follower before you can become a good leader."
In 2001 Dent Time was founded. With a combination of hard work, effort and determination anything can be achieved. As time went on, Myke opened up his forst commerce in 2006 selling other high PDR tools and products. Now offering his own professional produced pdr training videos. As time went on, Myke could tell PDR was much more than just a job. It was an ART!
