Cataract Oar Counterbalance Sleeves


Product Details

Counter balance your oars without buying new ones! These 4 lb. steel sleeves slide easily over the end of 1 7/8" oar shafts, fasten securely to the shaft anywhere you want and are completely removable. This river tool is fully adjustable and will enable you to offset the weight of the oar outside your oarlocks. You can custom adjust these weights for multiple rowers, personal preferences, or for different rowing conditions. They will definitely save some wear and tear on the arms over the course of a long day (or week) on the water. Sleeves are secured to the oar with three 1/4"-20 x 1/2" length nylon pan head screws. Ideal for oars longer than nine feet.

Price : $79.95


Oars Checklist

Get the Right Size : Read the Oar Guide to make sure you get the right size paddle. How long of a paddle you get depends on both personal preference and the size of the raft.
Oarlocks or Pin & Clips? : Each of their goods and bads. Read the Guide to Oars for more information if unsure what to get.
Protect Your Oars! Consider getting a oar tip protector. Tip protectors help protect the oar from chips and cracks.
Wood or Fiberglass? Wood paddles look great and work great, too. But they aren't as light as fiberlass. They are also more expensive.
Don't Be Adrift Without a Spare : Even the best of oars can break or simply "get lost" while afloat. As such, be sure to have a spare oar when out floating.
