Sawyer oars disaster?

Sawyer Paddles sues manufacturer, alleging breach of contract - News - DailyTidings.com - Ashland, OR

Well This explains why I cant find any oars local to put on my new boat. Pretty screwed deal. I use to stop in and see Bruce all the time before Pete bought the company. Crazy how they made oars so long and Pete comes in and tears it up in a couple years. I will be pissed if I am stuck with Cataract .

First thing that came to mind when I saw the article.

Apparently at least some orders are being shipped -- I ordered a pair of MX through a local shop a couple of weeks ago, and they just told me that Sawyer told them they (along with a few other items) are shipping today (hopefully that's true).

The squaretops are what I can't find, everyone local is picked clean. Trying to avoid shipping, they don't break down and are spendy to freight. Wonder what happened to all the old workers at sawyer, reading the article looks like he was trying to sell off the company?
