NRS Atomic Aluminum Oarlocks


Product Details

The ultra-strong, drop-forged NRS Atomic Aluminum Oarlock combines state-of-the-art technology with time-tested design. Pound for pound, this is the lightest, toughest oarlock out there. Our drop-forge production process yields a much higher strength-to-weight ratio compared to cast or machined aluminum components, making the NRS Aluminum Oarlock both lightweight and incredibly strong. It is extremely hard to "pop" an oar through the tines of the NRS Aluminum Oarlock, allowing you to row big water with more confidence. If somehow you do pop an oar, the tines return to their original shape, so you're not left with a bent oarlock. In drop forging, a metal blank is heated to a precise temperature, then the part is stamped out under extreme pressure. The secret to the part's strength is the aligning of the metal's crystalline structure by the heat and stamping. Durable anodized finish eliminates oxidation and discoloration. Smooth finish protects oar shafts, rope wrap and oar sleeves from wear. Includes split rings to keep the oarlock from riding up.

Price : $37.5


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.
