Oars for stern frame??

Just picked up a stern frame for my 14 ft Hyside self bailer. I have 10 ft oars for my regular frame...wondering what size oars will work with the stern frame. Any suggestions?

couple considerations-

1) your oar towers are now further in so a 10' oar is going to leave a lot of shaft outside the boat and your leverage is terrible.
2) you are sitting higher so something super short won't easily reach the water.

I use 9' but have used 8.5'

I would not use 10'.

9' including blade works sweet for most.
