Not what I need!!
I need a wider slower turning prop to get the most out of my setup.. My current prop is whispertip ex... I need a superwide. But no complaints on the motor as of now

Call Steve Higgs ( Shiggs ) I believe he has a brand new 572 that was a spare for one of his boats and he is selling it for a very good price.

Thanks Marshall--I sold one that was used and I am going to keep the other now for one of the boats.
