NGQ review finally got a chance to run it.

Post by jeepinocala1111 »

Said I would do a review well I had the first chance today to run it. 72 inch ngq on my 13 ft Jimmy White hull well the prop is better than great it pulls way stronger than the water walker I had and at lower rpms it push way better. I just cant tell you how great this prop is all I can say is save up buy one they are great. Right away it gets on plane twice as fast as the water walker I had, and now I can plane up at a much lower rpm. Cruising speed was about the same rpm but feels like its running the engine nowhere near as hard as the 72 inch water walker I had. No question at all it is much much more efficient than any other propeller I have owned. A+ ngq wins hands down its so quiet now all you hear is my clunkinental internals. I still ran with a headset but feel I did not really need it. Just buy one youll be happy.

It was a 72 inch 11 inch wide not sure but it was not their small one. Dont get me wrong ngq pushes much better no doubt but the water walker was no joke at all it pushed very well compared to anything ive seen until now.

Jeep, I agree, I've only run mine 3 times now, most noticeably was how quick it got on a plane, and lower cruise rpm than my old 3 blade H (only prop I had on this boat to compare it to). What motor do you have, what pitch do you have it on and what's your rpm on the trailer? I have mine on 2-1/2 and my 0470 turns it right at 2800 on the trailer, 3000 on the water. Haven't run enough dry to get a comparison, but seat of the pants says it pushes better on dry.

Mine is a high compression 220 gpu I have it just over 2 and 1/2 turning 2700 on the water taking off I have not had a chance to open it up its been to windy. The prop is amazing to me.

The 74" NGQ I put on the turn key boat I just sold is very impressive on an angle valve 540, it pushed hard and quiet! Great piece of artwork!

I was running a 5 blade Warp Drive but I bought a 72" NGQ from Lacey Everett when he built my O470. I think it is one of the best props out there.

Such a great feeling to read post like this, especially with all of the great competition that we have. Thanks for the review, I hope we can continue this pattern with some other new products that we are currently engineering.

We pitched it up to 2725 rpm and it is pushing like a circus elephant at the feed wagon!

Don't think you need to spin it higher, they love pitch. I have tried all the senarios from spinning it up high to choking it down.
It ain't a racing prop but if you want push this is the blade design.

Not to mention quiet while powerful

I am planning on putting a bit more pitch I like to keep my engine under 2700 rpm. I felt good about putting this review out I just wish everyone could try one sensinich would not be able to keep up with orders. I took mine one step further I made theft proof bolts to hold it on im pretty serious about protecting my boat since I had one stollen in the past.

I have heard that every boat pulls air different and that may explain your observation.

What blade length you running fl cracker?
