best folding prop?

The exchange rates evened it out so much that I just bought if from NZ . Shipping included to any US address. (reached them through the Kiwi Props NA site.) Owner of Kiwi Props is John Blundell, on the North Island at blundell.family@xtra.co.nz.) Money back performance guarantee first 30 days

Mine was 17x22. Composite blades trim with a sharp knife (they did it !!!). Blades are Dupont Zytel. Tough stuff. Slight camber to blade edge to help maintain feathered attitude. Blades are thicker at the root, and have an angle from mid point to tip.

Delivery time is about 10 days after they get the spec sheet you fill out, via insured mail. May be longer if you don''t have an SAE taper shaft (outside US-Can).

Allen wrench to adjust pitch in or out of the water. They recomend a coat of ablative bottom paint on the prop.

Ours balances flawlessly, even Grandma Lynn can tell the difference when we are sailing. It''s smoother now at 2,400 than the fixed prop was at 1,800.
