Sculling Sleeves & Buttons
The easily distinguishable Croker pink was first introduced in 1992 when Kaye Croker decided she could make masculine rowers use pink. What started as a threat has become the hallmark of Croker genuineness and quality. Our Croker pink sleeves, teamed with our yellow buttons, make a Croker Oar impossible to miss!
All Croker rowing oars are fitted with a copolymer interlocking injection moulded sleeve and button system.
Mark 3 Asymmentric (MK3)
The MK3 is a major upgrade to the MK1 symmetrical sleeve and is held together with plastic interlocking clips. This double ended sleeve performs better because it only has two flat surfaces.
The asymmetric design reduces the distance between the shaft and the swivel face. It is more stable square or feathered and positive in its movement, squaring and feathering. This asymmetric design is not recommended for use with the Magik or Martinoli swivels as these swivels produce excessive wear on the sleeves.
Fits: S2, S3, S4, S7 and S39/S40 Arrow shafts
Complete per pair $USD30.00
Mark 1 Symmetrical (MK1)
The MK1 sculling sleeve comes in two parts, the sleeve body and the clip (back). The inboard measurements are calibrated on the back of the clip.
The geometry of the sculling sleeve, if combined with rowlocks that have a 95 degree inside corner, provides excellent stability at the catch. The sculling clips can be replaced as required without removing the sleeve. The Mark1 sleeves are now only installed on S6 Trainer sculling oars. Prior to 2005, S2 and S3 oars sold in the USA were also outfitted with a version of the Mark1, now only available by special request.
