Comments about NRS Superston Oarlocks - 1/2" Shank:
I use these on my 13' pontoon fishing boat. They enable me to use my 8' counter balanced Cateract oars instead of the cheap, weak, flexable aluminum oars that came with the boat. The ones I purchased are to replace my older one and the one I did break last month after about 5 years of use (purchased in June of 2007). The broken oarlock ends had corrosion about 3/4 of the way accross. Most likely from a crack sustained from hitting a rock with an oar. I will carry the other older oarlock as a spare.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
