row2k Sweep Blade Comparator
Ever want to compare two oar blades directly?
October 4, 2016

With so many blades to choose from, it can be overwhelming to know where to start looking at the differences between blades, and thinking about what might be best for your crew. Enter the row2k Blade Comparator!

Choose the two blades to compare

Blade 1:

Blade 2:  

Blade 1
Blade 2

With this application you can overlay two different blades to see their relatively different shapes. (Of course, you wouldn't want to make your decisions on blade shape alone; check out our Rowing 101: Basic Rigging for a few more considerations.)

If you enjoy and rely on row2k, we need your help to be able to keep doing all this. Though row2k sometimes looks like a big, outside-funded operation, it mainly runs on enthusiasm and grit. Help us keep it coming, thank you! Learn more.

Good idea. Hard to do this by "sailor's eye".

Nice tool. I will add it to a blog post I just wrote answering a question on Quora "What is the Best Rowing Blade?"
