Cataract Oars
Counter Balanced Sleeves

5 out of 5 stars
1 Review



Counter Balanced Sleeve

Raft or drift-boat oars get trickier to handle the longer they get. Use the Cataract Counter Balanced Sleeve to weight the shaft anywhere you like so you can achieve a more balanced feel when you're rowing. The sleeve slides over the handle end of the shaft and secures to the shaft with three nylon pan-head screw adjustments. Over the course of a long day on the river, a counter weight can mean the difference between smoking your arms and arriving at the take-out feeling ready to rock a few more miles.


  • Weighted sleeve helps you balance your oars
  • Slides easily throughout the oar shafts
  • Triple-screw adjustment secures the sleeve position
  • Four-pound weight balances long oars
  • Item #CTR000M

They realllllllly help

I've put it through the wringer

I love them. I used to push down on my oars when rowing... now they are more balanced. It saves me so much effort and makes rowing my raft a lot more enjoyable, so I can relax and enjoy the day instead of fighting with my rig. Then I'm more ready for the rapids when they come, and can chill in flatwater sections of rivers. I've used them for maybe 4 or 5 years now. Ideally I wouldn't need them, but they fixed my situation, so they are awesome! :)
