I had forgotten about this recent Max Prop zinc improvement until I changed out a 70mm zinc on a Tartan 4100 yesterday. My supplier is now carrying a universal-style zinc (not sure who the manufacturer is) that is cast with a ring insert that keeps the screws captive even when the zinc is well depleted. The zinc in these pictures was depleted to the point that the screw holes no longer even existed, yet the zinc remnant and all the screws were still on the prop.
