The Harmony Thighbrace Pad Kit is the OEM replacement thigh pads for the Perception Carolina, Prodigy, Blackwater, Element, and the Dagger Catalyst, Axis and Zydeco series of kayaks.
Works great and easy to install. Really helps make the paddling more comfortable on the knees.
Product itself was a perfect fit and good replacement for OEM. BUT...WAY too expensive! For just a piece of water proof cushion and some nuts and bolts, it just seems like the markup is based on rarity rather than value..
These fit very well on a Perception Swifty Deluxe 95 and come with all the necessary hardware - rivets, neoprene backed washers, etc. - and instructions. I wasn't confident that the measurements for the bow / stern cockpit rim drill locations (step one) would be perfect for this kayak, so I improvised this part of the instructions. I started by sitting in the boat and anchoring the pad to the rim where I wanted it with a pair of spring clamps. With the boat now turned on its side and the outside edge of the pad clamped to the cockpit rim, I pulled the lower portion of the pad into the cockpit well and pointed a flashlight back towards me, thus exposing the two lower hole locations from underneath. I could then easily mark these two spots from topside of the cockpit rim and follow the remaining instructions for a perfect fit.
The pad appeared well made but would not fit my Perception Swifty 9.5. It is not advertised to fit it but I was told it should fit before I placed the order. Just could not make it work so it would look nice and be practical. Many regrets. Returning was not problem - just a phone call and done. Good customer service.
