I have no use for the lammy oars, they are way too rigid and the blade connection was pretty sloppy in the set I tried. Although I don't see how people can use cataract magnum blades either, I Had a set sent to me to try. I ran a them painfully for the day and then gave them away to someone at the take out, they had a horrible feel. I get to try alot of oars and am pretty unbiased about the name on them , I go on feel. The whole oar thing really confuses me with people because it is pretty easy to tell which ones are good and which ones are crap feeling, most of what I see on peoples boats makes me wonder sometimes.
People must choose their oars on cost, I don't try and pinch pennies with my connection to the water because I don't want to risk my life over a couple hundred dollar difference in a situation where I need to make the moves to get down river in one piece. You can just get so much more finesse out of a good oar.
