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. 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 SGX model is ideal for the boater who wants a stiffer, lighter, longer oar (10' and 11') on heavier boats; it's 50% stiffer than the SGG shaft. Cataract shafts are ground and painted for smooth finish. The removable Cataract Blade is made of high-density structural polyurethane. Shaft and blades are interchangeable with Carlisle models.

The Best there is
May 02, 2012

I have used Carlisle and wood oars. Both are OK but have their limitations. Carlisle oars are prone to breakage, color sheathing deterioration and bending. Wood can impale the user and is too heavy. Wood also requires periodic wood treatment and daily grain inspection for longevity. Carbon fiber, especially SGX, is the best oar shaft I have ever used. Getting past the initial pricey cost for this rugged and well-designed oar is the only obstacle to overcome. You get what you pay for in this extremely high quality item. To make your oars last longer place 2" tubular shaped foam around the shaft to give your oar some UV and shock protection from rocks and unexpected abuse.

These oars are excellent. I have been using these working on the rogue river for the past few years. The flex and power-snap that one receives from the Cataract Oars are oh so much better than what one gets out of the carlisle shafts.
