Oars for "Fine" are standard sculling oars, they have to be 9' 6" overall length, and "D" shaped at the oarlocks. The carbon fiber competition oars are about 3.5 lbs, and almost $800.00 Canadian. These are my second attempt and have come in at 5.25 lbs, but are nicely balanced. They are red cedar blades, and tapered, hollow, yellow cedar shafts with maple on the compression side. You can see a slice of the construction sitting on top of the blade.
