Those look great Mania, I saw them when I did an oar tower search on MB. However, they wouldn't have solved my problem, as I wanted a tower that I could tilt outboard and still maintain a proper oar angle. Laura helped me a lot with choosing a AAA over a DRE so that I could get the right width & angle. Seems like I saw something similar to yours, only with an angle......Clavey or Rowframe?????? I can't remember. The AAA have worked out nice. I just used them on my last trip (MF Salmon) so I don't have great pictures. Maybe you can see them in these pictures.
Basically, I used to use an NRS seatbar and the 8 inch NRS worked well. Then I got a new boat with bigger tubes and I went to a flip seat over a dry box. Those two changes really messed up my oar set-up. I needed longer oars, but also a taller stand with more width to make the longer counterbalanced oars work right.
