Is it better to have the Oars balanced, blade heavy or handle (grip) heavy?
Happy Anniversary🎂We offer the Dyne Lite blades in multiple build profiles for composite oars, along with favorites like the VLAM and Duramax. Each has a different weight and performance profile based on the materials used and edge protection options. We also offer options for counter balanced handles in a couple of styles.
We are launching a new blade in the Spring of 2022 during our 55 Year Anniversary, so watch for an opportunity to help us name this new product!
A properly built oar doesn't really need those.. Just my opinion after using a set.. neat idea, but solving a problem that hasn't existed till they hit the scene..I like the purple Gillmans with the counter balance!!
how much for the blades? im in the marketI used to run the standard cataract foam blades (I have three, two with tip protectors, if anyone is interested.) until I got a screaming deal on four dynalite blades here on the buzz. Changing the blades to the much lighter dynalites was huge. Much lighter as far as the down pressure from my arms and the swing weight is noticeably less. I run 9.5 shafts plus three inches from the dynalites being longer. Love this set up. Not a fan of counterbalanced sticks. They just seem really heavy to me.
