Custom Oars - Ordering and Shipping | Concept2

Pricing, Ordering and Shipping

We’re happy to assist you with all of your oar inquiries. Please contact or 800.245.5676 to order or ask questions about our oars!

Due to the changing needs of our oar production department, our oar team can usually respond to inquiries Monday–Friday between the hours of 9 a.m.–2 p.m. ET. However, it may take up to 1–2 business days to respond to inquiries concerning custom specifications, details about oars, guidance concerning specifications, rigging, etc.


Concept2 builds custom oars. This allows us to offer the greatest selection possible to meet your specific needs, however unique they may be. While many of our more common configurations work for most people, the fact is: if you want it, we will build it.

If you would like to order preconfigured sculls, check out our Bantam Sculls. If you are ordering sweeps or would like to configure a set of sculls, choose from our oar components. Estimated lead time is 2–3 weeks. Lead times vary and some orders may ship sooner than 2 weeks. If possible we will ship your order sooner, so keep an eye on your email for tracking information.

To order Bantam Sculls, simply give us a call.

To order sweeps or to order sculls that you configure:

  1. Choose your components. We recommend making your selections in the following order:
    1. Blade
    2. Shaft
    3. Oar length
    4. Handle
    5. Grip (sweep or scull)
  2. Use the sweep order form or scull order form to note your selections.
  3. Call us toll-free (US and Canada). You can find our number on our Contact page. Alternatively, you can email your completed order form to us.
  4. After you have placed your order, we will email you a copy of the order so that you can confirm the specifications. Review the order carefully and then confirm your specifications by email or phone. We do not schedule your oars to be built until we have received your confirmation. Confirm your specifications promptly to avoid delays with your order.
