Extremely strong, the Sawyer Duramax Oar Blade can take the punishment of running swift rocky streams. The glass-filled polypropylene blade has a burly aluminum core for added strength.
  • Sawyer's threaded nylon button locks the blade's aluminum shank securely to the oar shaft.
  • Fiberglass added to the polypropylene blade material increases flexibility and strength.
  • Tip is reinforced to shrug off the hard knocks.
  • Blade fits all 1 5/8" Sawyer, Cataract and Carlisle oar shafts.

      Comments about Sawyer Duramax Oar Blade:

      I like the blade. After using Carlisle blades for a number of years I upgraded to these, definitely worth the extra few bucks. They seem much beefier than the Carlisle and I feel like they move me better down the river.

          This is my second pair of these blades. I ran the first pair for eight years. The got me through being a beginner to running technical, rocky class 4 &5. I gave these a lot of abuse and finally had to replace them.

          Service and delivery comments:

          NRS's customer service and delivery was great as usual.

                The material and heavy construction make these much sturdier than Carlisles.

                  Q:

                  Not sure how to get the old paddle off,
                  Tried to turn screw in shaft , does it screw out all the way to release the paddle or 90 degrees.

                  Want to make sure I can get old one off before I purchase two new ones from you.

                  Thanks , Mike

                    Mike, to get the blade out, turn the Tite-Set screw clockwise to lower it into the blade shank. The Duramax Blade we carry is for the 1 5/8" inside diameter Sawyer oar shafts. We don't stock, but can order the ones for the 1 3/4" ID shafts.
