That sucker snaps like my GSO!!! and surprisingly quieter than a warp! I would have never guessed it was turning 3k on the trailer!

I went with a 72 set it on 8 the first time turned it at 3000 and bumped it to about 10 turning it at 2800 performs like a dream I have it on a 180 with angle valve pistons on a sv with a cam ! I like the Cruse I got from the 72 if I had a 160 I would go with a 68 just because they like pitch more than a warp

I'm not a 100% sure but I think he's got a 160. I rode with him on Saturday and was very impressed with that prop.

I want to try this set up on my H-Model 160 Got a 70 inch narrow blade whisper tip on there now. plenty of push but seems like you gotta wind it up. and if feels rough at a certain RPM. Id like to see how that set has the snap and smoothness. Been thinking about this for a longtime but hadn't heard all this input till now. Sounds Awesome!!!
