If you contact Advanced Composites they can probably alleviate any concerns you have
My biggest concerns would be does the setscrew hole loosen up or rattle after time, can you strip anything (including the screw head), etc
They may also have the name of a local dealer who carries them, or be able to ship the std oars without the handles installed/epoxied
Sotar might not stock the 11' so they may get drop shipped from Utah anyhow
Hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it "guaranteed", I will. I got spare time.
