I rowed at four and then three today using the grey/PB oars doing similar drills and noticed that the three oar has a lot of flex when compared to the four, it was noticeable and perhaps needs a closer look.
Maybe worth taking a spare three if racing next weekend.....
Hi Tim, I set up both oars side by side on the trestles, I couldn’t reproduce any significant difference, nor hear or see any damage.
Did it occur when the back down then row on drill was being carried out? I don’t like that exercise as it strains everything too much.
We’ll monitor it going forward and if it loosens up or gets worse let me know.
