Counter balance your oars without buying new ones! These 4 lb. steel sleeves slide easily over the end of the oar, fasten securely to the shaft anywhere you want and are completely removable. This river tool is fully adjustable and will enable you to offset the weight of the oar outside your oarlocks. You can custom adjust these weights for multiple rowers, personal preferences, or for different rowing conditions. These will definitely save some wear and tear on the arms over the course of a long day (or week) on the water. Sleeves are secured to the oar with three 1/4"-20 x 1/2" length nylon pan head screws. Ideal for oars longer than nine feet.

Definitely worth the investment
While kinda pricey, these are arm savers! I'm a strong woman but these counter weights really do help take some of the stress off. No problems with securing them as I've read before and the nylon screws are holding fast.
