Ok, so I really really like being able to throw up my oars quick and easily whenever I feel the need on the river. However, I found the velcro to be slightly not as strong as it probably should have been after about 10 days of river use..... and then I look down and boom. One side is missing. So what do I do??? Well, I tell the company that I am asking for just one after my tragic loss of an oar hook. But instead they say "we only sell them in pairs". hmmmm... I dont need two, I already bought two, and one was defective enough to fall off, so I have one good one and now they want me to order a pair... so 1+2= 3. Great! Now I can row a 3 oar boat. It would be a shame to have to sell my outcast pac 1200 since it's not capable of rowing 3 oars just because someone at the company was too lazy to divide 20/2 and sell me 1 for $10... yikes.
