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.
  • Blades Sold Separately
  • These oars perform like no others, translating muscle energy into stroke power more effectively than other oars, giving you the ultimate in oar responsiveness.
  • The SGG oar shaft flexes and rebounds like wood without the weight or need for maintenance.
  • These oars are wrapped with rope and come with a rubber oar stop. The oar stop needs to be rolled onto the rope. The distance will depend on personal rowing preferences.
  • 1/8" thick grips cushion the handles.
  • Blades are sold separately so that you can choose the width and brand that best suits your needs. The removable blades also permit easy storage and transport.
  • Shaft lengths are listed as the final length, which will include the approximately 27" long blade you choose (sold separately). For a list of ACTUAL shaft lengths, please click on the Specs tab.

      Comments about Cataract SGG Shaft with Wrap & Stop:

      This is a super comfortable oar that coupled with the magnum blade, really moves a boat. I did however break one in half through some class III/IV big water. Otherwise oar is fantastic! Very nice to have the counter balance!

      Service and delivery comments:

      NRS' customer service is absolutely top notch! I broke this oar in half while rowing through some relatively big water and NRS worked with Cataract to get me a brand new oar the very next week. I will always do my best to buy all my rafting gear through this company!
