Cataract Oars & Blades (5:26)

You don't have to know rocket science to row a boat, but it helps to have gear made by a company who does. Cataract shafts are made with the same filament wound glass/carbon/epoxy composite technology used by the aerospace industry. These oars perform like no others, translating muscle energy into stroke power more effectively than other oars, giving you the ultimate in oar responsiveness.

    They seem to be pretty tough. Friends have used and abused these on low water runs for a couple of years. Nice light weight floating combo with Cataract oars.

      Comments about Cataract Oar Blades 6 1/4":

      Bought these blades to use on my personal boat and they worked great but after about one trip formed small cracks where the blade met the oar.

      Didn't think much of it but as I used them the crack got bigger until now they are almost 4 inches long.

      Sent photos to cataract and they did absolutely nothing. In fact they said "they could break tomorrow or they could last 10 years"

      They offered me a "special" replacement for the same price I could get the blades through a well-known online retailer.

      Terrible customer service.

      Pros

      • Bouyant replacement blade
      • Fit Carlisle shafts
      • Lightweight
      • Strong and flexible

      Cons

      • None

      Best Uses

      • Drift boat
      • Rivers

      Comments about Cataract Oar Blades 6 1/4":

      I didn't know if these would help float my Carlisle shafts. The thin bladed Carlisle blades and shafts sank like a rock. These new replacement Cataract blades swapped out easily and yes, I can now drop my oars as the blades float on the surface! I was excited to see that! They are also strong with just the right flex.

      Service and delivery comments:

      On time and in perfect condition.

          It weighs 3 pounds. And it floats.

          A:

          I'm not sure what the exact weight of the blade is, but they are about the same weight as the Carlisles' they replaced. Best feature and reason I got them was they float! The Carlisle blades sank. Nothing worse than oar handles in my drift boat sticking straight up in the air and steering the boat (or poking me in the ribs!). Get the blade tip protectors and you are good to go. I've used mine three or four trips now, and really glad I got them.
