The Sawyer MX Oar series' light weight, exceptional strength and innovative good looks are a result of many years of field testing and feedback. The core of the MX system is the longitudinal fiberglass shaft, available in a variety of colors and upgrades. Combine this with the blade that best fits your needs and rowing style and you have a truly customized oar that has the best balance of strength, weight, flex and durability.

Should I get Counterbalanced Oars?

Counterbalance adds a 2.5 lb. weight in the oar grip to offset the weight of the oar while rowing. CKS recommends counterbalanced on oars 9.5 ft and longer. Shorter oars are lighter and don't typically need to be counterbalanced. A stronger rower can use longer oars without counterbalance, while an inexperienced rower might benefit from counterbalance on a shorter oar. The weight of the oar blade you use might also impact your decision. The disadvantage of counterbalanced oars is that they are clumsy to transport and could sink if dropped in the water.
