The Sawyer S/P Lights Oar is the choice of the Northwest's professional Drift Boat Guides. They're light, they're wood, they're tough... and they're beautiful.
  • Laminated from specially selected straight grain Douglas Fir for a light, stiff and stable oar.
  • The blades have a slight crown for superb control and Northern White Ash edges and epoxy-metal tip splines for excellent durability.
  • Full length tapered shafts are rope wrapped (with rubber stopper) for durable, quiet rowing and have a rubber-covered grip for comfort.
  • Finished with a sealer soak, plus two thick coats of the finest marine grade spar varnish.
We recommend using Cobra Oarlocks with these oars.

  • Sawyer S/P Lights Oar


    Are these oars counter balanced?
    Would they be sufficient for use with a white water raft even though they are built for dories?

      They are not counterbalanced. As to whitewater use, they would work but the Sawyer Light Drifter oars or Square Top Dynalites would be better choices for heavy-duty whitewater usage.

Comments about Sawyer S/P Lights Oar:

I received a pair as a gift to try out and ended up buying another pair. Gotta say sawyer makes the best oars for whitewater rafting. I have found no equal. I have used them throughout the Pacific Northwest and the Grand Canyon and will row with nothing else.

    Comments about Sawyer S/P Lights Oar:

    a weekend of guiding, covering 16 river miles, and they're so well balanced I don't really feel there's anything in my hands! Turnover is quick, they're extremely responsive, and beautiful to look at! Gotta love `em!
