When Spring flushes the run off from the mountain and the river swells, the Cataract SGX Oar is right at home in the churning, extreme conditions. Designed as the big-boat alternative to the Cataract SGG, the SGX offers an extra-long, extra-stiff option for piloting a heavy load in white-knuckle conditions. Cataract has been in the business of making rafting, drift boat, and pontoon boat accessories for over 40 years, and that experience shows in its products.
- Carbon, fiberglass, and epoxy shaft gives this extra-long oar the maximum level of stiffness
- Composite shaft is lighter and stiffer than many of the aluminum and wood options offered by competitors
- Composite-and-rubber handle offers a large grip area and features a no-slip grip surface
- Handle shape and material also help reduce grip fatigue when you're rowing for hours on end in tough conditions

- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This is by far the best oar I've used. A bit heavier than the SGG, but I've never noticed a big difference when rowing. If I were to get a whole new set, I'd spend a bit more and get the ones with the counterbalance built into the handles.
