For the last few years, I've bought Gull Oars, made in NZ, from Seattle Marine, with tip protectors. Excellent deal.
I've also bought Gull oars from Crowley Marine in Portland.
I do my own rope wraps and use rubber donuts. Favorite locks are Sawyer Cobra. Some of the shorter Gulls have small shafts, for which I use Sawyer Mini-Cobra locks (which in turn have 1/2 rather than 5/8" shanks). So I made my own oarstands. (You can also find or make bushings to drop into the holes in 5/8" stands.)
Love the Gulls: brilliant flex and feel, and they float.
I tried those foam grips, but hate 'em. So I gave 'em away. The bare wood grips are nicer.
