Comments about Cataract SGX Oar Shaft:
I have used Carlisle and wood oars. Both are OK but have their limitations. Carlisle oars are prone to breakage, color sheathing deterioration and bending. Wood can impale the user and is too heavy. Wood also requires periodic wood treatment and daily grain inspection for longevity. Carbon fiber, especially SGX, is the best oar shaft I have ever used. Getting past the initial pricey cost for this rugged and well-designed oar is the only obstacle to overcome. You get what you pay for in this extremely high quality item. To make your oars last longer place 2" tubular shaped foam around the shaft to give your oar some UV and shock protection from rocks and unexpected abuse.
