    So, Ive had about 4/5 outings now, rowing in the boat is so hard!! Im getting the hang of it now though!
    They thrown you straight in the deep end rowing in eights with cleavers? Or do you get a nice start like we did?

    I'm not a novice any more. This means senior training plans. Scary and painful. :eek:

    Cleavers are a kind of blade that senior crews use - supposedly catch more water, but it's also easier to catch crabs with them. Most novices use macons for a while, which are easier to start with, my crew used them all term. I had my first outing with cleavers the other day, in a mixed boat where I was the only female ex-novice, with all the other girls coming from the first VIII! Steep learning curve there, as well.

    don't get me wrong, i really like ben, but its much much to early to compare him to anyone besides the other rookies, all of whom either havent started (losman, rivers) or have under 3 starts (manning).
    Well, you're neglecting the idea that if they had played like Ben in their less than three starts, it probably would have led to more appearances on the field.

    The blade of a cleaver is convex, whereas macons are flat. The former place more presssure on the lower back, as well as requiring greater blade control; the latter require less skill, but restrict power

    Probable. They isn't much difference really, it's more down to physical capability than technical skill. if you're reasonable fit and strong - like most 18 years old are - you'll have no problem switching over.
