Just ran my new boat this past weekend, a 12' Bullfrog Marine glass hull with a 200 hp Lycoming put on a 70" narrow whisper tip turning 2900. It performed great, lots of snap, low end push, and top end also. I'm going to try a 68" Q series to compare but I think the narrower blade may work better on the 4 cylinders.

Yep, waiting to hear how the Q compares, I have a cyprus 68" good push, but I need something quieter. I'm looking at WT, NGH, Q.

Anybody running the Wisper Tip on their boats? How do you like the performance.I guess I would like to know if I would see a performance gain or not.Thanks
I have used that prop on several different boats and engine combinations the 'Q' is great they left some on the table, W/W produced there whisper tip long after the 'Q' was out, W/W noticed the snap needed to be quicker than it was to help break the boat loose, quicker snap means engine will get to top rpm faster, also they worked on more mid rpm. thrust, for increased cruise speed there all way's perfect balance yes I be live you will get a little but is it worth the difference, may be may be not but I am sure W/W would sell you the prop free delivery no tax out of state, 30 day's trial time if not enough difference send it back at your expense free tec8668075354

Ran the 70" Q Friday and this is what I found.Hole shot 60 yards 32 MPH deep water.Cruise 2000 Rpm's 25 MPH.Wot deep water 38 MPH.Break free on the ground 2100-2200 RPM.I thought it was interesting to see that in 60 Yards and top end WOT the 68" Cypress and the Q ran the same.On the ground is where the difference was.When the boat broke free with the Q it would crawl around on the ground with less RPM"s than the Cypress did.Also ran both props from a stand still up a steep levee .The Cypress made it about half way.The Q made it all the way to the top.By the way when I had the 72" Q on the boat it only made it half way up the levee. I set the 70" Q turning 2700 RPM"s.It will be interesting to see if I gain anything wih the NGH.

I thought the cypress was the same prop as the signature just shorter? Maybe Plum will jump in and clear this up.

The Cypress blade is shorter and Narrower compared to the Signature. It's hard to beat a Cypress for a 4cyl or a signature on a 6cyl. I just wish the quality was a little better.

Mine looks as good as the day i picked them up with a lot more running
time than that. I would have thought they would have giving you a new set of blades.

They sure haven't the blades look like shit where the leading edge stops then picks back up at the winglet there is even enough room under leading edge to stick a ball point pin head under the winglets leading edge.this is the 4th time I have had to send it back for them to repair it granted I did sling a bolt through the main leading edge the first time never even touch winglet
