After saving up for forever, my adoring husband finally let me pull the trigger on these tie-dye wrapped Sawyer MX-F composite shafts with Cataract Magnum II blades. The shafts are made with lightweight fiberglass and fiberglass/graphite composite tubes in a just-right balance of weight, flex, strength and durability. And the blades are made of high-density structural urethane and a composite core for moderate flex and super strength. The svelte cross-section is a water-dicer.
It's a great combo, and they look dang slick on our 143D Aire raft and NRS rowing frame, and I can't help showing them off. But I promise, when I get a new boat anchor or cooler, I won't make you look at pictures.
