NRS Superston Oarlocks - 1/2" Shank


Product Details

These high-quality NRS Superston(TM) Oarlocks are precision turned to fit oar mounts with a 1/2" diameter opening. These oarlocks do not fit NRS Oar Mounts. Our proprietary manganese bronze Superston alloy gives you amazing strength and outstanding rebound memory. The 3 1/2" long shaft is turned to a 1/2" diameter and is drilled for a split ring fastener (included). They do not fit in standard NRS Oar Mounts but can be used with NRS GigBob Oar Mounts. Since these 1/2" models have a smaller diameter shaft, they are not as strong as the regular 5/8" diameter models. We do not recommend them for use in whitewater or with oars over 7.5'. The horn opening is 1 5/8" with a 2 3/8" inside diameter. Our regular Superston Oarlocks (Item # 77407.01) have a 5/8" diameter shaft that fits in NRS Oar Mounts. Sold individually as well as in pairs, so be sure to order a spare. Compare the measurements under the Specs tab to those of your oar shaft to ensure a good fit with these oarlocks.

Price : $42.5


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.
