You're set on piloting a big boat and pushing it through heavy rapids and churning, extreme water. The Cataract SGX Oar was designed for just such a task, and this oar includes a protective rope wrap around the shaft and a counterbalanced handle for easy handling. This is one of Cataract's longest oars, and it's more than a third stiffer than its SGG model. For navigating a long, heavy boat through hazardous obstacles, the SGX Oar has no equal in the Cataract line.
- Carbon, fiberglass, and epoxy shaft gives this extra-long oar the maximum level of stiffness
- Shaft rope wrap protects the shaft from dings, dents, and rubbing and quiets the oar when it makes contact against the boat or the oarlock
- Counterbalanced handle provides a comfortable, slip-free grip and includes a weighted, internal sleeve to help balance the weight of the oar outside the oarlock

Is the counterbalance just in the handle?...
Is the counterbalance just in the handle? If I wanted to have the option not to have counterbalance could I use a different handle?
