Great performance, terrible quality
September 28, 2012
Wish I could give these a good review as they work and I hate giving bad reviews on products, but these oar blades just don't last. After my first trip with these, they formed small cracks at the top of the blade where it meets the oar. After a couple of years of light use, the cracks have gotten progressively larger (one of them is about 4 inches long). Sent photos to cataract for warranty and all they said was: "Could last 10 years or could break tomorrow" They offered me a "special" replacement prices that was essentially $5 less than a well known online retailers price. What a joke!Pros: Performance, Cons: Wears quickly, Poor quality
Cataract like always makes great stuff!!!

That what I like about my cataract oars is that if you crack a blade you can buy a new one for only 70 bucks. Can't beat it! I really like everything they are doing at this local SLC company.
