Rated 4 out of 5áby boatman Replacement Oar
Used to replace a missing oar for my 12 ft. boat. Oar seems to be fairly strong and well made. Have not had a chance to use it being to late in the season in New England but I'm sure it will work just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5áby DeckHand Surprisingly Great Buy
I have been looking for a good set of oars for too long. I have borrowed a variety of sizes and styles. I bought these only because they looked good and the specs and description sounded right - and I was tired of looking. I was against spending hundreds of dollars for oars and Craigslist had none for sale. These are the lowest price oars I could find and still get some quality. They were not among those I had tested.
I ordered them online with a deal for low shipping charges. If I had waited a few weeks it would have been free shipping for Christmas.
As it turns out, they are by far the best of all I have seen, which was not expected. The durability is great and they are strong. The plastic blades are not an issue as I though they might be. I like that the blades are reinforced with aluminum. Don't know if they will last forever - time will tell how they hold up.
The weight is good and I am using an oarlock that is adjustable to allow for use on boats with different beams. The red Caviness« Power Grip handles are comfortable. the aluminum shafts are stronger than any of that type that I have used. The shaft is clad with 1 1/16" wall of plastic. I like it.
These oars look durable however I don't plan on leaving these out in the sun and weather. The aluminum shafts should last along time. I don't know how UV resistant the plastic on these oars will prove to be, but I wouldn't leave any oars continuously exposed to the elements - if I expect them to last.
