Loiske Oars are finely made for Swanson Boat Company by Shaw and Tenney. These handcrafted oars have unidirectional laminated white spruce shafts and shaped marine plywood blades. They are sufficiently stiff for a good power stroke but have enough flex for comfortable sustained rowing. Oars are 8 feet 3 inches in length and weigh 2 1/2 pounds a piece. Intended for use with Sarana oar locks. Price includes shipping in the continental U.S.
