Introducing: The Dreher Macon Blade

The best blade for recreational rowing

If you are interested in Dreher's Little Big Blade please click this link.

Dreher Adjustable Length Club Sculls: These sculls are designed for the recreational, master or youth customer, who wants the same choice of specifications as the competitive adjustable scull customers. The features and adjustments include Adjustable Length, 2 Blade types (Macon or Little Big Blade), and two macon blade sizes, 17cm Kinder blade, which are perfect for women and younger rowers, and an 18 cm touring blade.

         

             Oar Collars                                                           Measure on back of oar collars

bulletThe proportions of this macon blade are reminiscent of the "tulip" shape blades in the 60's which were shorter and wider than the typical Macon shape. The new symmetrical shape is much easier to handle due to the lighter weight composite carbon fiber construction of present day sculls relative to the wood construction used in the '60's.  Entry and exit from the water are very smooth, constant depth was apparent during the drive and it is easier to row "oars squared". The ability to row at race cadence and to achieve speeds comparable to with what we were able to do with 'Big Blades' is a pleasant surprise. At the very least, we feel confident that our dedicated group of customers will be very pleased with the symmetrical, spoon shaped sculls . This blade shape has the best features of the both the Macon and Big Blade design and is especially appealing to the recreational, intermediate and master level scullers.
