Volvo Folding vs Maxprop feathering

Hi 4Fish; regarding ''yer 3-blade Max-Prop vs Volvo 3-blade question. I''d suggest staying with what ''ya know..3-blade Max. Installed one 2 yrs ago on my CS-40 after much "cogitation" (replaced a 2-blade folding Gori). I''ve been very happy..same cruising speed, more "punch in a chop", better reverse (although not an important factor) and much smoother. I''d suggest a primary consideration is that ''ya can get it rebuilt from PYY (the Max) for relatively few $. I looked at rebuild with my Gori and, as I understood it, the gearing made it problimatic. I believe the Volvo-3 is geared also so suspect the same applies. Good luck...Sketch
