    OARS

    The shaft of an oar receives a lot of

    attention at Croker Oars. We invest

    many hours into designing, developing,

    and trialling our products and believe

    our range of shafts give every rower an

    opportunity to match their skill level with

    what they want to feel in the water.

    Before assembly each shaft is deflected,

    weighed and matched to its identical

    partner to give you the best pair of oars

    possible.

    Contact us regarding your abilities and

    we will offer suggestions for a shaft we

    believe would be best suited to you.

    SCULLING SHAFTS/OARS

    All oars at Croker Oars are custom made to order. Each shaft is individually tested for stiffness and weight.

    They are made to suit each individual and each individual has different needs.

    SCULLING Oars

  • sculling // Product Guide 5

    S39 ARROW Series - Small diameterThese shafts are made using high modulus carbon, recently used in the Americas Cup boats.

    They have multiple layers of thin carbon plies at various angles to achieve a balance of strength, stiffness, torsional stiffness and very light weight. These thin shafts have less aerodynamic drag

    than normal shafts and because they weigh less have less rotational inertia.

    Shaft Type Weight Usage Blade Handle

    S39 Soft 1240gm

    These thin shafts are designed for highly competitive lightweights, juniors, women and masters who demand the finest and lightest sculling oars in the world. Ideal for athletes with 2km erg scores slower than 7:00, water times in the 1x around 7:45 or slower for 2km. These shafts are fitted with the new Arrow Sculling Blade. This high performance blade is the latest development from Croker Oars. It is designed for athletes who want the best and exhibit good technique.

    A,S,M Adj

    S39 1250gm

    These thin shafts are designed for world class, elite level and highly competitive openweight athletes who seek an uncompromising sculling oar, the ultimate tool for propulsion on the water. Scullers with 2km erg scores faster than 6:45 and water times in the 1x faster than 7:30 for 2km are well matched to the stiffness of the S39. These shafts are fitted with the new Arrow Sculling Blade. This high performance blade is the latest development from Croker Oars. It is designed for athletes who want the best and exhibit good technique.

    A,S,M Adj

    S39 Stiff 1260gm

    These thin shafts are designed for quads, doubles and strong single scullers (over 100kg) at an elite level. These multi axial carbon shafts are custom made for rowers who demand a stiffer shaft. Recommended for rowers with a 2km erg score of 6:00 or faster or on water times faster than 7:00. These shafts are fitted with the new Arrow Sculling Blade. This high performance blade is the latest development from Croker Oars. It is designed for athletes who want the best and exhibit good technique.

    OARS SCULLING Shafts

    S7 SeriesThese shafts use multiple layers of thin carbon plies at various angles, to achieve a balance of

    strength, stiffness and torsional stiffness. Standard diameter shafts.

    Shaft Type Weight Usage Blade Handle

    S7 Soft 1400gm

    These full carbon shafts are the traditional Croker diameter, but incorporate the materials and techniques now utilised in our Arrow shafts. The shafts have superior torsional stiffness compared to the S4 models, but the deflection under load is comparable. With a slightly more forgiving introduction to the full load at the catch, the S7 Soft is appropriate for rowers below the standards for the regular stiffness S7, or those preferring a little more flex. As with all of our elite soft shafts, it is well matched to scullers with 2km erg scores slower than 7:00, water times in the 1x around 7:45 or slower for 2km, or for those who desire a slightly more forgiving feel at the catch.

    S,M Adj

    S7 1400gm

    With superior torsional strength over the S4, these full carbon shafts incorporate the materials and techniques now utilised in our Arrow shafts. The S7 is appropriate for elite level scullers seeking more torsional security than offered by the S4 regular full carbon shafts. It is well matched to scullers with 2km erg scores faster than 6:30 and water times in the 1x faster than 7:30 for 2km.

  • sculling // Product Guide 7

    S4 SeriesThese shafts are full carbon shafts made using various layers of standard modulus carbon. They

    achieve a balance of maximum strength and minimum weight.

    Shaft Type Weight Usage Blade Handle

    S4 Soft 1300gm

    These 100% carbon shafts exhibit crisper catches and allow higher rating than our elite level S2 Soft models. They are ideal for juniors, women, as well as men below the pre-elite level. It is also a popular choice for smaller elite openweight women racing the single scull. It is well matched to scullers with 2km erg scores slower than 7:00, water times in the 1x around 7:45 or slower for 2km, or for those who desire a slightly more forgiving feel at the catch.

    S,M Adj

    S4 1380gm

    These are the premiere sculling shafts for mens senior and elite competition, as well as world-class elite women. The shafts are 100% carbon and exhibit crisper catches and higher rating than our elite level S2 models. This has been the oar for anyone pursuing National Team goals, but also for anyone who wants every mile to feel exquisite. The recommended 2km erg score is 6:30 and faster, or a water time in the 1x for 2km faster than 7:30.

    S,M Adj

    S4 Stiff 1400gm

    Designed for quads, doubles and strong single scullers (over 100kg) at elite level. Recommended for rowers with 2km erg scores of 6:00 or faster or on water time faster than 7:00.
