Re: Fixed vs folding prop

After replacing my 2 blade fixed with a folder several years ago, I went from 2nd-3rd place finishes to consistent 1st-2nd place in our club races. The folder doesn't back well, and it doesn't drive well in a chop, but I'd rather sail with rough seas anyway. It was worth the sacrificed performance under motor.
