I currently have a set of 10' Sawyer Squaretop Dyno X oars that I use on a 14' Sotar raft. I love the oars and have nothing, but positive experiences with them. However, I just got a new 16' raft to add to the fleet and am torn between picking up a set of the original Squaretops or Sawyer Bandits. I had a repair in September 2020 to a full tear in my rotator cuff and rowed the Squaretops for 8 days on the San Juan and a day on the Alberton Gorge this spring and it felt great! We (family of 5, wife rows own boat) spend about half of our time rafting split between multiday trips and day runs on class 3/4 water in Montana and Idaho and fishing trips on our local Montana rivers. Hoping someone has had some experience rowing both and can give me some feedback. I like the idea of being able to change out the blades on the Bandits between shoal cut and a traditional blade depending on river and use, as well as, the overall lightweight and ability to remove the blade for transport. However, I am worried about durability for whitewater use, as well as low water fishing trips. Leaning toward another set of squaretops, but defiantly intrigued by the Sawyer Bandits, just haven't been able to find any body that has real experience with Bandit.
