        They lasted about three seasons

              Comments about Carlson Oar Stirrups:

              They look good and are stiff enough to support your oar if it comes off of the pin. I noticed a bit of wear from rubbing, but one ended up breaking when I let go of an oar and the eddy sucked it under the boat. Snapped it right in half. Then I noticed the other one had a 1" crack on the top and was ready to go too. This was their third season. If you decide to use these, buy spares. I ended up making my own out of some old rubber conveyor belt. Not pretty but reliable.

                    Dont buy these oar stirrups. Broke two sets in two days from cold weather. They are very weak. Look for a rubber or vinyl stirrups.

                    I've used Carlson oar stirrups for years

                    Comments about Carlson Oar Stirrups:

                    These are the best oar stirrups out there for pin and clip rowers. These don't break down in the sunlight, believe me. They are made of a special hard plastic. They only break after grinding repeatedly on rocks (and that takes a lot of river rock or parking lot action) or from twisting too much with an oar still in the stirrup after a gnarly flip. Carlson Stirrups have kept the oars with my raft through many a rapid, sometimes upside down. Also, it's good to use a short-length oar leash. Carlson pumps are also made well and will last you for years.

                      Comments about Carlson Oar Stirrups:

                      This is a very poor substitute for the 1/4" nylon stirrups available in the past. They degrade in UV light, and break easily. I would only recommend them as a temporary solution. And remove them for storage, even out of the sunlight, as they will break in a year or less, even when not in use.
