    Outfitter Blade Assembly

    Attach the Carlisle Outfitter Blade Assembly to your Extra Heavy Duty Rafting Oar (sold separately) and hop in your river raft. Carlisle made sure the glass-filled synthetic blade has full-length reinforcement to withstand rough conditions. Of course, a blade that feels like cement at the end of a stick isn’t helpful, which is why Carlisle kept the Outfitter Blade lightweight. At the end of your trip, simply remove the blade from your shaft for easy storage.

    • A durable and economical oar blade for whitewater rafting
    • High-impact polypropylene material protects against rock chips
    • Glass-filled synthetic blade design offers lightweight performance
    • Aluminum spine reinforces blade for ultra-strong endurance
    • Large blade size affords a strong purchase and impressive power
    • Push button locks the blade in for secure shaft connection
    • Removable design offers convenient transport and storage

    Great all purpose blade

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    great blade, I run them with my 13" fishing raft and they do the job. My home river is the gunnison in CO which is a really bony river and they hold nicely.

    Great blades!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Nice blades - a staple on my boats. Nice priced, good tough blades that won't let you down. Of course if you put them between a rock and a river the river will win and bust them, but they are a good blade. Two thumbs up.

    Bomber standard

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These blades are the standard go to for a reason. They are bomber and cost effective. Until I have a real job and can afford fancy carbon oars these will be the go to.

          Durable and economical

            Used these blades when working for a commercial outfitter on the Colorado. These are pretty big blades that give you a lot of purchase (may be a little rough on your body if not conditioned). There were pretty durable but a couple guides I worked with had a couple shark bites in their blades (usually from rigging and derigging). I never saw a blade break but saw a few bent oar shafts. Economical and if you break a blade or bend an oar these are replaceable/detachable. There are nicer stuff out there but not at this price.

            I forgot to mention: the blade does flutter a bit (more noticable on shorter shafts) but less than you would expect for such a wide blade.
