The stuff professionals use

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These puppies make up 90% of of the oars we use at O.A.R.S. They are light weight, durable and affordable. The rubber grips are easy to hold onto though some of the tight spots and help reduce chafing. on the long flat water sections. I rowed for 5 seasons as a guide and never saw a shaft break, crack, or any sign of compromised structural integrity. All around solid.

Lightweight and burly!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These oars are great, i much prefer them over the standard aluminum oars. They are lightweight, smooth to the touch and can take a beating. I've personally smashed them into rocks, slammed them into walls and dropped them off a truck and besides cosmetic damage they were fine. Just spend the extra dough for em' it's worth it.

Great Light Oars

These were great on the Grand Canyon. Arms never got tired like on the heavy wooden oars. Great response and strength.

Epiiiic! Sweet video testimony of these oars!
