    I have been using Superston oarlocks for 15 yrs and have covered thousands of river miles and they have been bulletproof ! In response to 'dorydriver's ' review it's obvious by his photos of the bent oarlocks that they were not held down in thier bushing. They could not have bent as shown in the photo if they had been. If allowed to lift out of the bushing to the limit of the keeper the shaft would be unsupported and would then bend.

    I've used these oar locks with Carlilse oars and they work great. But now I'm using Sawyer hybrid oars and I need to tune the oar locks so I can drop the larger diameter sawyer oar shafts into the oar lock. I've tried heating the oar locks and bending them with a pipe, but they are holding fast at 2 5/8" on the dot. Good indication of their strength, but I'm curious if anyone has experience successfully tuning these oar locks to fit Sawyers.

    Any advice is welcome, thanks!

          Comments about NRS Superston Open Oarlocks:

          When properly supported I do not see how you could bend one of these oar-locks outside of flipping your raft onto a boulder. I use the stainless steel spring assembly in my set-up. I've bent (and broken) oars, mangled lynch-pins, and distorted the split-rings, but not one of these NRS Superston oar-locks has ever failed me.

            ... comfortable in the alloy, particularly in shallow rivers. One truth still unexpectedly broke down, probably too loaded, but in NRS changed easily with the new. The service also on top! Thank you.
