Unique patented design. The purpose of the oval shape is to provide extra height to allow the oar blade to be raised higher during recovery.
• Constant contact on both sides means smooth, coordinated stroke with no ratcheting; the oar stays in place with no walk-in
• Expanded height increases oar angle to approximately 30° keeping oars in the water longer and deeper
• Improved top clearance lessens stress on sides of boat and rower's shoulders
• Increased angle allows greater choice of oar length
