We’re delighted to offer the Wraptor Balance in the Rowperfect shop.  This is the perfect aide for new scullers because it straps onto a fine boat.  You don’t have to buy new boats to teach novices any more.

The inventor, Diarmuid Fehily describes it as “Trainer Wheels” for singles 1x and doubles 2x and pairs 2-.

Experienced rowers can use it on their fine singles and pairs as well when you want to teach square blades or other refined techniques that are easier to learn in a balanced boat.

Common questions we get from coaches who teach novice rowing and sculling:

  • How do I store large trainer boats which are infrequently used?
  • How do I get novice rowers to relax their hand grip?
  • How to prevent beginners capsizing?
  • How do I help disabled people access and enjoy our wonderful sport?

The answer to all these questions is the Wraptor Balance.

Don’t just take our word for it…

Wraptor Balance Ride

“Since we bought the Wraptor balance they have been used extensively by both adult and junior beginners and have proved to be a great benefit especially to those who are less confident as they take their first steps in rowing. We are also using the Wraptor balance with more experienced rowers as they work on improving their technique. Overall I would have to say this is an excellent product and certainly has proved to be money well spent.”

Chris Edwards, Runcorn Rowing Club

Wraptor is the best piece of equipment that this club has purchased, to aid the introduction of beginners to the sport of rowing. It is the quickest and easiest way of developing their confidence and technique. We find that the Wraptor is also a brilliant accessory for more experienced oars-people and gives great opportunity to develop and improve technique.”
Paul Fisher, Fermoy Rowing Club


“It gives the youngest rowers the confidence that they need when first trying out the single.The Wraptor also provides a safe learning environment for both the athlete and the coach.”
Derek Holland, Portora Royal School Boat Club

“The Wraptor balance gives the user a sense of security and safety and confidence to new oars-persons allowing the coaches to provide a better quality coaching session and making a more enjoyable experience for both oars person and coaching staff.”
Vincent Hussey, Offaly Rowing Club

“With a lot of new members under the age of 15 the Wraptor Balance gives them the confidence in the water especially when they have never rowed before.”
Susan Allen, Clonmel Rowing Club
