This is the original Cataract Oars blade offering. It remains a fixture for rowers who value durability combined with enhanced buoyancy. While all of our oar blades float, none bob so vigorously as the Cataract. Hence the blade’s nickname: “floater.” Cataract Oars offers an optional tip protector to envelop the Cataract’s lower extremity in a rugged sheath of dip-molded rubber.

    I beat the crap out these blades on a Middle Fork trip with low water (1.68ft). A few cosmetic scratches, but I was so impressed that they did not get damaged. I was literally rowing through the rocks at some points. I do have the tip protectors which I think is a good idea, but convinced they would have been fine without. I’ve used them in big water also. They are light, durable and the fact that they float is awesome.
