The white oars have been used for a few endurance events and I think there are a couple of issues with the whole set. They are not sitting between the pins properly and all those who have used them have incurred some really nasty blisters which they would not normally get from any other set. I would be very grateful if they could have a bit of a service and test when possible.
There’s a variety of issues. Mostly the oars tilt forward or backwards therefore hooding or scooping. Means you have to make constant adjustments so I guess that’s the leather. Because they are rotating I think that’s prob where the blisters come from.
