0470 what prop?

Post by Blowboatin_ » Mon Sep 07, 2015 7:39 pm

0470 sitting on a 11' sled can only swing up to a 70" blade. Thinking about a 70" power shift or 70" NGQ.

Suggestions please!!!

Haven't had a chance to ride mine yet but went with a ngq all I can say so far is it's built real nice one of the best looking props I've seen. Go quiet and we can stop the regulations.

I think a 70 inch NGQ would push like crazy low end. I would also good look at a whirlwind whispertip if I were you.

What is the purpose of your boat? Do you wanna drive dry ground or go crazy fast? Maybe look into a set of Sabers / Razors if your into the go fast boats..??

I had a 3 blade H on mine, ran pretty good. I have a new 72" NGQ, haven't had a chance to test it yet, hoping to get a little better low end push. I don't think you can go wrong with the NGQ

I currently have a 68' whirlwind on it and I don't like it, I mean it works but i can just feel there should be way more push with that motor.
Also I like having a boat that can do well over 50 but having that low end push to get me where I want to go is most important to me
