Ok so here are the specs.
22" tubes
frame 59" wide where the towers mount
8" towers.
I'm 6'1"
standard NRS seat bar and NRS seat.

I would like to get the shortest oars I can go with for this WW set up.
I realize there is a lot more involved, but is there anyone similar sized with a similar set up, and what size oars do you use? Thanks

I had a 12 ft. Hyside with a 54 inch NRS frame. I used 8.5 foot oars. I like longer oars in general. I had to use the 10 inch towers to get the right width for the longer oars.

6'1"
10.5' Hyside Minimax, 18" tubes, with 48" frame, 6" oar stands; 7.5 oars worked fine.
Then got 12' raft w/19" tubes; frame fit, but a tad narrow; tried 8" stands -- like it better with the 1 foot extenders (total = 8.5').
Recently got cat with 22.5" tubes and 60" frame -- ordered 9' oars (might have been smarter to borrow/rent 9' first, but...)
YMMV.
