Alpha Blade Oar with Tool Free Adjustment: This customizable oar features our unique Alpha Blade and is equipped with our revolutionary new Tool-Free Adjustment. The Alpha blade has more curve from top to bottom, and from tip to tail, with the same smooth transition from blade to shaft that all Dreher sculls and sweeps have in common. This oar features the characteristics that are standard with most Dreher oars; 10 cm of adjustment, handle size and grip options, and an autoclaved shaft that guarantees maximum longevity.
One feature unique to this oar is the segmented screw that is built into the shaft at the time of manufacture. This means that upon the end of life of the oar’s collar, the assembly can be unscrewed and the part easily replaced.
- The total length is adjusted with a lever arm that allows easy on-the-water adjustment in under 10 seconds per oar.
- The lever arms can be easily aligned.
- The outboard is adjusted with the nut that moves the bearing surface in 0.25 cm increments also in under 10 seconds.
