Time for prop

Post by Gary S » Thu Dec 25, 2014 7:40 am

Almost time for a prop on my new boat. 11 foot Don Davis with a 0320. I run a Q on the boat I have now and I am satisfied with it. It pushes great and it goes fast enough for me. Have heard good things about whirlwind. What does Whirlwind make that is comparable to the Q. I am more concerned with low end push and cruise than top end.Anyone go from Sensenich to Whirlwind?

I had the 66" Whirlwind Excalibur on my old 320 powered Thurman. The push was there. It would run dry pretty well for a 12 footer, especially since it only had 150hp. If I bought another 4 cyl boat, I'd buy the Excalibur again.

You should look into the 68" NGQ. You could reuse your existing hub , it is night and day compared to the Q.

I have a 170 and I ran the 68" ngq and wasn't impressed neither was my buddy with his 320 boat. I would demo it first to see before you buy it, I also ran the ngh in 68" and the cypress in 68" im currently running 69" bowtie with razor blades and love it much smoother than the two blades and has more snap, also its easy to pitch and take on and off and if I damage a blade I can get a new one shipped for free for 300 dollars.

Not trying to steal the thread, but how do those Razors push on the low end? Looking for options to replace my warp

pretty darn good I turn 2700 have them all pitched at 7.5 the bowtie setup acts like a wide blade so I have good low end but its still snappy and smooth like a warp and its not loud either, however im not sure what the real gains are over the standard warp blade I went straight to the razors on my boat.

I went from a 70" q to 68" ngq and love the difference!! Running less pitch and getting better fuel usage with the ngq
