Dreher Standard Competition Sculls



Standard Modulus Adjustable Length Carbon Sculls:

Dreher adjustable length carbon sculls offer multiple options including four blade shapes; two levels of shaft stiffness; three handle sizes; a few rigging selections; and several sleeve choices (including the Tool-Free Adjustment option).

Apex blades have been our best-selling blade for many years. The spine at the top of the blade provides clean catches and releases. The Apex Round lollipop shape keeps the blade connected even in rough water. Big Blade and Little Big Blade are traditional hatchet shapes with the spine in the middle.

All Dreher shafts are 100% carbon.  The stiffness of the shaft is determined by the carbon lay-up on the mandrel, not the material. “Soft” (less stiff) has more flex at the catch for younger (and older) scullers to minimize the stress on the back and shoulders.

Handle size is the diameter measured in centimeters.   Each size increases by 2 mm, but Stampfli grips increase each size by one millimeter more.  For example, a medium handle measures 3.5 cm with Martinoli grips and 3.6 cm with Stampfli grips.

Overall length of 288 cm or 286 cm with inboard of 88 cm is fairly standard for most boats. Adjustable length gives you +/- 5 cm of adjustment from that base rig. If you would like a different rig, please add the information to the ‘Order Notes’ during checkout or send us an email.

Adding the Tool-Free Adjustment option gives you the ability to change the inboard and the total shaft length on the water or on the dock in under 2 minutes without tools.

Priced per pair.
