Sensenich said when I called that the 3 blade JM would be the best all around whether they where full of shit or not I don’t know I was looking to get feedback from people who run them but I guess no one on SA runs one
maybe some of these members can chime in again

Performance. I do believe the snap is better due to the lighter blades of the JW. The new
Locking hub is cool and it's hundreds cheaper than the NGQ. Both are great though!

The 3 blade JN will be snappy and will build strong thrust through the mid range and up into peak rpm. This prop will have great top speed and be smoother also.

I run a 3 blade on a 541, worked good for cruise , smooth but I got tired of getting stuck with it, went back to a 72x50 2 blade, don't have that issue now and the economy wasn't much different & cruise is a little higher rpm's ( about 200 rpm's more). It just didn't have that get me out of the hole. FYI it would run the hill, it just had problems with getting started moving.
2000 Combee 18' / TIO 541 Don't laff, it takes me there and brings me back.
