Re: Whirlwind guys - prop options??

The whisper tip is a great prop for sure but I prefer the 3 blade Excalibur for the snap and push.
I run them both on my 360 you can't go wroung with either one.

Re: 4 blade wrap drive prop on 4 banger lycoming

I brorke a crank on my 360 with a 4 blade + but had no problems with the bowtie.
I think it also has something to do with the way the + is clocked.

Re: Feb 1 hog Waller TNT

Can't get enough boats to commit.
The last time there was only 5 or 6 boats showed up and the track owner lost his but.
We need to support the track if we want to keep this going.

Re: What's the best all around prop for a 12' alum hull w/a

You should try the Excalibur, it's between the narrow blades and the wide. I am running a 3 blade 68 on my 11 ft alum boat with a 200, it works great.
