We gave a pair of magik oarlocks to a sculler to try out and this was his verdict after 2 weeks trial.
I tested the MK1 Evolution sculling Oarlocks; I was previously using standard Concept oarlocks.
I did a pprox 6 outings while testing the oarlocks.
My first impressions were positive. The sculls felt a lot more secure in the oarlocks, especially at the front end. Squaring was also assisted by the definite “clonk” that you hear when fully square. I am a novice sculler and previously I was squaring each blade at slightly different time and not getting my right blade fully square all the time, but the MK1 Evolution oarlocks seem to have remedied that fault.
