Re: Prop for Angle Valve 200 Lycoming

I may try the short hub to make my Q 70"and see how that works.It just seems that most of the post on here state that the Q may be a little too wide for the 4 cylinders.

Anybody running the Wisper Tip on their boats? How do you like the performance.I guess I would like to know if I would see a performance gain or not.Thanks
