Sculling Handles & Grips


We have designed our sculling handles with comfort and ease of use as our highest priority. Selecting a handle that is correct for you is necessary to achieve the best performance. A handle that is too small will cause trouble in the rough water and may turn in the rowers hand uncontrollably.


A handle that is too big will fatigue the rower’s forearms and also result in excessive wrist movement feathering the oar. All our sculling handles come fitted with our injection moulded thermoplastic grips. These second generation grips have gained universal acceptance since their release.From the initial work that we have done there seems to be a strong correlation between hand size (measured from the base of the thumb and the tip of the fingers) and preferred grip size.


We have collected enough data so that we are now able to print a simple chart relating hand size to grip size for sculling and rowing. This will enable coaches to order the most suitable handles, particularly for school rowers.

Sculling oars can be fitted with either carbon adjustable handles or fixed timber handles.

Carbon Sculling Handles

The carbon handles are available in three sizes: small (26mm black end cap), medium (29mm yellow end cap), and large (32mm white end cap).

Timber Sculling Handles

The timber sculling handles are available in five sizes: 26mm, 29mm, 32mm, 35mm and 38mm.
