Welcome aboard

rebuilt stock or 470, 520 conversion motor? ( kinda makes difference with such wide range of Hp in pe-90's)

assuming rebuild stock to worn 470 angle valve conversion , look around for a used 68-70" three blade H or a 70" two or three blade cypress

Those warps will kill your ears . wood sticks depend strongly on your motors condition general range would be 34x68 to 36x70 (assuming same as above) and no wide paddle blades, regularly check for rot with wood they come apart can make a bad day

Support our future , get a kid involved in the outdoors!!

For your PE-90, if it is stock, you are probably putting out about 125 to 150 HP.

I for this type of HP /RPM motor, I would recommend our 2-blade Whisper Tip (10" wide) in 66" diameter for $1590 complete.

Do you know if your PE-90 is stock, or if it has been upgraded / converted?
Do you have any diameter limitations?
What size wood or Warp propeller have you been running?

Patty has some good questions un-answered? I would offer my 3 blade 71 inch sabers if you could deal with something only I can describe as cat scratch fever from a prop. Dam annoying anywhere near the 2k range and ear popping at 3k.
