I have a max prop and love it. Built like a tank. A recent thread was inquiring about vari-props and very few seem to use them. It provoked me to search a bit and most of what I saw was discussion about the reliability of the vari-prop internal mechanisms. I just disassembled my max-prop to return it to have a ding in one blade repaired. Service folks on the phone were excellent at max-prop (PYI, inc). The internal gears looked brand new and the stop is an internal brass lug that showed no wear after 6 years.

I've never used a vari-prop, let alone seen one installed (that may say something itself), so take this for what it's worth and research you're own conclusion.

In the harsh marine environment, something is always in need of repair. Margaritas fix everything.
