        Nice when new but will not last

        By Maryland Sailor

        from Annapolis

        Verified Reviewer

        These oars look great but the finish does not last. After a couple years the moisture gets into the laminated blade and the blade portions begin to separate. The oars would last longer if they were not exposed to the weather when not in use. I leave my oars in my dinghy all season and the moisture gets to them. I think they last about five years in these conditions even when stored inside in the Maryland winter.

          Comments about Deluxe Wooden Oars:

          Lots of reviews about the poor finish. I bought 4 (2 pairs). They are utility oars. Finish is good to go, not for show.

          Yes, I admit, I commit the rowing sin of digging the blade into the gravel in shallow water. These have a hardwood insert in the tip of the paddle for sinners like me.

          These softwood lame grain poor finish oars are low cost and light weight. If you have ever rowed with expensive heavy hardwood oars, you will love these rough-duty cheapees.

            Row, row, row your boat GENTLY down the
            stream. Emphasis on "gently", they would
            be nice if they were made of ash or some
            quality wood but, they're not.

              It's great to see oars that come in the right lengths,so many times you order 6' oars and you get 5.5'ones. These are good and strong, be able to handle years of service.Plus they are just plain sexy!

                      I used these oars only once and for just a short time. Already I see splintering and lifting of the wood. I can't give an honest review just in case these particular oars by-passed the quality control folk during manufacturing. [...]
