i have an angle valve 0360 on 11ft hamant hull. right now have a 70" sensinch h series? (i think). i turn 2850 and does well. also have a 3 blade 68" whirlwind (super snapper?)sitting around. whats your opinion on what prop would do what for my setup.

also the whirlwind is off an 0435 and is a splined hub so will it even work on the 0360? the hubs seem different.

i've heard sensinch is better than whirlwind.

i've also heard whirlwind is better than sensinch.

whats up with 3 blades versus 2 blades?

thanks in advance for any and all remarks\comments.

Try them both and run what ya like and sell the other. I believe the center hole on the whirlwind is just cut to a bigger diameter to accommodate the spline shaft. I'll check with Pati and let ya know.

the 200 are generally strong I would recommend going to 72" it will run a hole lot better at a hole lot less r.p.m. like there designed for with the shorter props you have to run to many rpm's i'd like to know the h.p. mine is 210 let me know and p.m. me and i'll tell you what i'd suggest to keep from being preference wars on here I don't have time for it

72" whisper tip is what I run on mine. I've tried several had a 72"Q as well, the 72" whisper tip wide blade version or regular version not the skinny one, performs the best by far on mine.

WW Cypress works great on my little boat. Runs dry no problem.

cant beat the q series, ran the 72q 72h and 72wt on my 200 and the q was by far the best, im running a 70in h now and its ok, sell your h blades and the three blade and order 2 70 or 72 Q's

Schmidt Aviation has been running the 72" Sabres { 3 Blade } on his 200 and loves it. I would look him up on here and call him and pick his brain. He has run them all and has the same motor you do. why listen to everyone else when they are stuck on one thing. Plus Tom knows his Shit!! Just My oppinion
