The AIRE Blade Rests are a cool accessory that solves the problem that all oar-riggers face--where to rest your oar blades when you need to put the oars down for a second. You can't drop your blades in the water to helicopter around your boat and you can't tuck them under your knee without losing your ability to move around in the boat.
These blade rests hang off the frame and give you a convenient place to rest both blades so that you can go hands-free with the peace of mind that you won't catch your oars on the river bottom while they aren't in your hands. They are one of those little things that you don't think about needing, but you'll really appreciate them when you have them.
Sold as pairs.
