    I'm setting up my new raft and was looking for feedback from anyone who has used Premier Oars and Blades. We seem to have our fair share of skinny water here in Montana and the concept of the diamond shaped blade does have some appeal. I have included a link to their web page. Any and all advice is appreciated.

    The concept seems ok. $305 per oar seems a bit much though. That might be a bit of an understatement also. I'd also be leary of the taper toward the tip of the oar being a weak spot. I'll stick with my Cataracts or a good set of Sawyer MSX-G for use in my boats.
