Product info


  • The SGG shaft, with its spiral wound fiberglass and carbon fiber lay up flexes and rebounds like a wooden oar without the maintenance issues of wood.
  • The handle area has a four pound weight added. This counters the weight of the oar out past the oarlock. In a day's rowing, you lift that oar out of the water hundreds of times. This takes a lot of the work out of your outing!
  • Shaft comes with rope wrap and rubber stopper, for quiet rowing.
  • Blades with 1 5/8" diameter shanks are sold separately so that you can choose the width and brand that best suits your needs. The removable blades also permit easy storage and transport.
  • Shaft lengths are listed as the final length, which will include the approximately 27" long blade you choose (sold separately). For a list of ACTUAL shaft lengths, please click on the Specs tab.
  • Wrap Begins 20" From Handle base on the 9' Oars and 22" on the 10' Oars
  • SGG oar shaft flexes and repounds like without the weight or need for maintenance
  • They are ideal for most water conditions and boat sizes
  • shafts and blades are interchangeable with Carlise & Sawyer models
