I was wondering if anybody has ever use NRS 4 lbs. counterweights on 9 foot oars. I recent injury has left me wondering if these could help. The nrs websites says use the counterweights for oars over 9 ft. Any feedback?
Yes, they will sink some oars. I've heard of people filling their carlisle oars with some foam to give them buoyancy, but I haven't bothered yet. Sawyers shouldn't sink, since they are wood, and no idea about cataract.
