A new stock Carlisle 8" outfitter red heavy duty blade, black Carlisle oar stirrup, heavy wall T-6 6061 1" aluminum pipe properly corked and drilled. I recently pulled the raw new materials out of storage and carefully put the custom selected components together. I have a limited quantity of these oars. Carlisle does not offer red oar blades anymore.
They also do not sell oar stirrups for replacement. These oars are stronger and are more resistant to bending under stress than the standard Carlisle 8" (actual width is 7-3/8") heavy duty outfitter oars offered now on the the web from outfitters. I have no way to replace any parts that you may damage from your extreme river usage experiences.These oar blades weigh between 44 to 46 ounces per assembled unit. Attached to a properly sealed carbon fiber oar shaft they can and should float. Turbulent classes of whitewater require extra closed cell foam tubing around the oar shafts to assist in flotation in the event of separation from the boat or frame. I use 2 ID rubber insulation tubing from Home Depot for UV protection as well as impact and collision protection from rocks on the river.
