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 Counterbalance on oars 9.5 ft and longer. Shorter oars are lighter and don't 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. Counterbalanced oars are clumsy to transport and could sink if dropped in the water depending on length and blade weight.
