How Our Oars Are Made and Tested

What began in 1976 is still true today: we custom build every oar to your specifications, and every oar undergoes rigorous quality testing before it ships. When we develop an innovation, we test it for performance improvements; we do this in the shop and—the truest test—by taking it out on the water. If an innovation does not show that it will help make you faster, we don’t release it.
