Cataract SGG Oar Shaft


Product Details

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. Shaft lengths are listed here as including the blade. Please see the Specs Tab for ACTUAL shaft lengths 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. 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.

Price : $144.95


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.
