The Sawyer SquareTop DyneLite Oar is simply the best rowing, lightest swing weight, whitewater-proven oar on the planet! Solid laminated Douglas Fir from the handle to the tip of the blade. These oars combine the unduplicated feel and progressive flex that only a tapered wood shaft delivers with the added strength of a carbon fiber braid wrap. The name comes from the oversized square top from the handle to the rope wrap, which provides a counterbalanced feel without compromising flotation. Yes, a counterbalanced oar that floats flat on the water!

    Hands down the best oars!

    I called Sawyer one time to “chat” about oars and received some of the best customer service ever. These are made by people who care and it’s obvious. Love these 8’6 SqaureTops and they fit perfectly with my new 11’6 fishing raft.

    SquareTop Oars

    The best oars I have ever used. I should have switched years ago. These oars will add years to my rowing. The flex eases pain to my poor old shoulders.
