Pitch gaugeWe recently sold a pitch gauge to Chris Clayton, Coach from York City Rowing Club .

Here's what he had to say about it

Many thanks for the pitch meter which arrived today (well wrapped).It seems very well made.

It will be very useful as I am helping to coach a sculler with a strokeside blade which is diving, and I need to eliminate possibilities like the pitch of the gate. As a former sculler myself, I never received any technical coaching, which became a real handicap the further I progressed. In sculling everything gets magnified, and where it is easy to overcome weight and rigging problems in an eight, if you are roughly correct, there is no escape in a scull over 2000m. ( I represented Scotland in an eight but would have liked sculls far better).

Sincerely, Chris.

Pitchmeter for carbon tubular riggers designed to sit around the C-Cup and do fore/aft and lateral pitch simultaneously.

There’s no delicate way to put this. If you’re a regular Rowperfect reader, you’re just . . . well . . . smarter than most people looking to improve their rowing, sculling, coxing or coaching.
