Shaft Length Measurements

 

 
BRAČA-SPORT® offers adjustable and fixed length scull and sweep oars. Correct oar length directly corresponds to the overall boat performance. Optimal oar length is generally determined by a rower’s technical style, physiological condition of crew, physical characteristics, and boat rigging. Many factors effect optimal leverage such as blade design and size, and inboard settings. A longer oar provides more leverage than a short one.

Our standard production lengths are shown in the table below. Adjustable oars allow for more precise and versatile fine-tuning. Each oar range of adjustment is 50 mm and labeled with exact min and max length. For adjustable oars all the variable factors for optimal performance are set in the middle of the range, for example a 370-375 cm length oar has optimal performance at 372.5 cm. Non-standard requests are available upon request. Please contact us for details.
