Blade Geometry and Area Summary
Over the past three decades, we have continued to develop and innovate Dreher Sculling Oars in an effort to maximize performance while simultaneously creating ideal blades shape for the various scullers globally. The following charts and diagrams provide a comparison of the blade areas of the eight of the eleven sculling blades that we manufacture:
|BLADE TYPE|| BLADE AREA
|| BLADE TIP WIDTH
|| TOP LENGTH
|ER or ERX||713 CM*CM||NA||NA|
|EA or EAX||816 CM*CM||22.2 CM||49.5 CM|
|EH or EHX||780 CM*CM||24.0 CM||51.0 CM|
||787 CM*CM||22.0 CM||46.0 CM|
|APEX-R or RX||740 CM*CM||NA||NA|
|APEX or APEX-X||818 CM*CM||21.6 CM||43.3 CM|
|BB2198 or BBX||795 CM*CM||21.6 CM||43.3 CM|
|Little Big Blade (LBB)||750 CM*CM||20.1 CM||43.3 CM|
|Macon 19cm (LS)||747 CM*CM||19.4 CM||45.8 CM|
|Macon 18cm (Touring)||747 CM*CM||18.1 CM||48.4 CM|
|Macon 17cm (Kinder)||713 CM*CM||17.0 CM||48.4 CM|
