The past couple weeks you have seen little of me! Im sure some of you liked the Simms "lull" that was present here on NEFF Anyway, I am back and ready to be the useless post whore that I once was!
So, while I was away, I finished school, moved in my own place in Worcester, MA, and landed a sickkkk job! So, im finally settled in, work is going well, and I am able to get back out on the water.
The past year I've been outfitted with a set of Carlisle outfitter oars. Aliminum covered in polly, these oars were not of the best quality and didn't flex for SHIT. however, After spending close to 4k for the water buggy, I had no intentions of upgrading oars upon boat purchase. However, I have since ordered a new set of sticks and I can't wait! I rowed a few boats with cats/polecats/Lamiglass and the new sexy and fancy Sawyer MXG's...HOLY SHIT, the Sawyer MXGs are the cats tit...I also got the DYnelite blades too. This set up is so light! MY GOD! At 9 feet, counter balance weights are not necessary.
The oars will be here next week. Can't wait to get out on the water with time!
In the mean time, Sh4ne87 and I are headed to the Deerfield for a 2 day float...will report back with pics and a report!
