Comments about Replacement Carlisle Foam Oar Grip:
They work great, I have grips on an old pair of Sawyer oars that are about 28 years old and they are in still good shape. Not sure where I got the grips but they are the same type and still as new as the day I put them on.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Wow, it's been a while, but yes, I think they do. They are pretty reasonable so go ahead and buy them and if they don't fit, just return them. NRS will not let you be disappointed - they never have disappointed me.

Yes, they will fit on the Economy Oar grips.

Good question. I bought these a few years back for regular Carlisle oars which are 1 7/8 diameter whereas the economy is 1 3/8. As I recall they are a very tight fit so they may still work. at the risk of being trashy you could first wrap the oar with duct tape to make sure the fit was tight. They did save my hands on a five day Rogue Trip.

Yes, I've used the foam grip replacements numerous times on my two piece carlisle oars, no problem. To help get the grips on, I've used anti-bacterial goop to help with them slide on .
