Nex-Gen Pro-Loks

I had just ordered a pair of pro-loks for the coming season and was waiting to receive them. Today I got a call from them about their new nex-gen locks and the option to upgrade. There is a short video and some pictures on their facebook.. I have a feeling the whitewater crowed is really going to like these.. No more collars or sharp edges, takes all the good from the last series and just made it better.. Not a full doughnut anymore so in the case of a broken blade it will be easier to slap in your spare.. I have not received them but am really excited about the upgrade. He said they will be ready early January. Here is a link to the facebook that has a short video and some pics.. https://www.facebook.com/Pro-Loks-LLC-249685618400838/
I have no affiliation with the company just excited about yet another advancement in the whitewater world.

Sort of like an open oar lock and an oar right had a baby. Interesting.

I guess I don't understand. I never looked into original Pro-Loks so maybe that explains where I'm coming from. I run open oar locks and rubber donuts and I don't see much difference, just more parts to do the same thing. I like to feather my oars and pull them in, which it looks like these will let you do. What else do they do?

They do all that but also give you the option to lock with the little peg.. and the range of motion is smoother. No bashing your oar lock with a rock to keep it from popping out the top. Combines open oar locks with the added benefit of being able to lock.. I can row open sale then my wife can lock in and go.

Have a couple friends who love them. Check the welds. My friend Dietz had his lock fall apart the first day. Snapped right off on calm water. Shit weld. Had a good welder fix it and hasn't had a problem since.

Will these work with the spring and lynch pin setup? When I upgrade my oars from Carlisle's to Cataracts I want to get a new pair of locks as well. Considering these and the Cobras.

Do these work for shafts with rope wrap?

I don't think these will work with rope wrapped shafts.. I am getting the shrink wrap sleeve from pro lock that looks pretty slick.. As far as the spring and lynch pin, I don't know if it will yet. I think it will depend on what oar towers you put them on.. I will check to see if they will work with NRS oar towers when I get mine..

I wonder if he can machine them for the large sawyer shafts? I talked to him about making some of the older versions and he said it was not a problem...hopefully the same will be said here 'cause those things look damn sweet.
