I couldn't break them

Comments about Carlisle Oar Blade 6-1/2" Outfitter:

A little on the heavy side, but that's what makes them so lovable. A low water trip on the Middle Fork Salmon last year bashed mine up pretty good, but by the end the only damage was a rounding of the corners from hitting so many rocks. We broke or bent several oars, but the Carlisle blades just wouldn't break.

    Comments about Carlisle Oar Blade 6-1/2" Outfitter:

    I've had several of these. Now setting up a second raft, with shorter oars. These have a simple, perhaps clunky-looking appearance. But they seem tough, except for an occasional scratch from rocks. I have yet to break one in any way. The fit is tight and secure once installed, but the lock button seems to hang up some times.

      • Carlisle Oar Blade 6-1/2" Outfitter

        Q:

        Can I get a sleeve for the Carlisle Oar Blade? I jammed an oar and broke the 'stopper ring' off the end of the sleeve. Is it possible to order a sleeve?

          A:

          Mark, I'm not sure what you mean by "sleeve". The only replaceable part of the blade is the spring-loaded button that locks the blade into the shaft, Item # 77251.01. To chat about this, please give us a call, 800.635.5202.

        Q:

        I bent the shaft of one of my outfitter blades on the MFS, is there a way to straighten it again?

        • A:

          Yeah! Done the same on some low cfs rivers. Jam the blade in between a couple large rocks or boulders and bend using the attached oar shaft as leverage as near to the bend as possible. You may have to put increasing pressure and hold for a period as blade comes back to it's original position. You should also check for straight a couple times and if you over do it just flip it around jam it in and give it a little pressure and it will come back.It does work. Done it many of times. Been running the same Carlisle blades for a lot of years.

          A:

          I've done that before with a Carlisle blade. What I did was prop the handle end up on a rock and put my weight on the junction of the blade and shaft until it straightened. Depending on what degree the blade is bent, there has to be some fatigue to the metal spline in the blade, possibly weakening it. However, I never experienced a failure. Good Luck!

          Alumin ussally breaks if bent back. Best to buy a new one.

          A:

          if the aluminum tubing is broken then no, you can't use it... but I've bent
          many Carlisle blades and then straightened and continued to use them... a
          vise is the best way, nice and slow, but I've had to hammer them flat(ish)
          with rocks on the riverbank mid-trip... always best to use it as a spare,
          it is going to be weaker, nothing you can do about that.

          I have straightened bent blades and oar shafts between two conveniently spaced tree trunks. I have gotten them almost perfect and then try to relegate them to the spare oar ranking.

          Renny, that blade is no longer made. Best I can suggest is trimming the 6 1/2" blade.
