Ahh! Good news!


Thanks for letting me know that you have the handles for which I have been searching. I don't know why Down River Equipment didn't come up when I searched for Carlisles oars. Perhaps I failed to check deeply enough. I am new to Colorado Springs, but it looks as though you are up in Denver only about an hour or so away. Do you ship? How much are the handles and shipping. Do you have a good amount in stock? I am expecting to be up in Denver at the end of May, is Down River Equipment easy to find? The map on Google looked a little confusing.

P.S. Danny. Sorry for calling you Andy. I must have been thinking about your last name, instead. Again, thanks for your efforts to bring back the inventory that we boaters need.

We have some handles left over from that process. We do not replace handles or have any advice on replacing handles.

The only other comment I have on this issue is some people may not like that Johnson Outdoors because it is a big corporation and that is fine. We can all choose to support whichever companies we want. Big corporations have their pros and cons, but please if you are going to try and influence people’s decisions HAVE THE APPROPRIATE AND CORRECT INFORMATION. One thing that is undisputed is Danny is a great person and an asset to the paddling community.
