Kiwi Feathering Prop

Looking for any experiene with the Kiwi 3 blade feathering prop...

motoring (e.g. vibration, "weed rejection", etc...)
reverse performance...
maintainance...
reliability...
company support...
etc..

I figure for $1300 I can get as much sailing performance as a new sail at 2x$$ and significantly better motoring performance than the "stock" michigan wheel 2 blade, and maybe even be able to reverse out of my slip without panic/fear/loathing...!

Thanks,
Don
