Structural polyurethane coating around a lightweight composite core. 7" Magnum blade incorporates the strength of the original with a teardrop design: wider tip and thinner cross-section enters the water quicker and reduces flutter.

Durable Bouyant Blade
August 28, 2012

I have used carlise and cataract blades. The cataract magnum blade does provide noticeable bouyancy not found in the carlises. This bouyancy does seem to reduce fatigue on long days of rowing. Also, it lessens the chance of catching a downstream oar if your not paying attention. I have never experienced durability issues with either brand of blade. I do prefer the carlise blade feature of a slot molded into the blade. This slot is especially useful for rigging a spare oar on the boat or for using the oar at camp as an upright for a tarp shelter, volleyball net, etc.

Pros: Build quality, Performance, Ease of use

After using these blades for an entire season while guiding on rocky rivers out in the NW, I have found zilch for any faults in these. They provide a nice feel in the water and can even feather nicely while still in the water. If you are in between these or the others, I would strongly recommend these. I can't believe that it took me 6 years of using cheap oars and blades before I got me some Cats.

Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
