Oar extensions: Cataract vs. Carlisle

Got a good deal on some Cataract 9' oars, on assembly of new boat it appears they're going to be too short so I'm looking at getting some 1 foot extensions. Appears Cataract makes them as well as Carlisle, price is only a few bucks more; anyone have personal experience with them?

oar extensions

Did you get the Cataracts? I figure they're composite, same material as the oars and would be better than the aluminium Carlisles in my case.

The ones I got from sawyer are made out of the same stuff as my oar shafts.

Oar extensions

Interesting in that their site nor Cataracts site mention them. So are yours the composite like the polecat shafts?

I have had extensions for my 9 foot carlyles and have had them for several years. They work very well and I have had no issues with weakness or anything else. I use them with the 8 inch NRS oar lock stands for rivers with maneuvering room and the shorter versions for more technical and tighter spaces. Cheap way to get longer oars, though I still use 9 footers for spares.

I got a set of the Carlisle extenders for father's day. I've used them a couple of times with my ten foot cataracts rowing into the w on the San Juan. They fit perfectly and are easy to use. They also make a world of difference, I'm sure either brand would do that though!
