    advise needed

    Chris, A Stock 40x53 has too much cup in it for great rpm approx. 3.91” If I was you, I would reduce the trailing edge cup at .7 radi. it will run much better off the corners. Have Fun Testing, Mark Sholund

    Lynx cut prop

    Mike, Thanks for showing Robert that M-440 w/Lynx-Cut on your O. S. I have a couple new ones that I have been working on recently. I believe I have a 1515 for you also. Thanks, Mark Sholund

    Charlie, Looks good on the water. You are going to find some faster boats in Florida this year. It seems like quite a few more twin pilots are out testing more propellers than in the past. Good Luck And Enjoy The Sunshine, Mark Sholund

    advise needed

    Chris, The M-440 with a Lynx-Cut is a great propeller also on that set up. I think the X-442 will be a little too much diameter on that set up on a short track. Just a thought? Happy Holidays! Mark Sholund

    Joey, Some are doing rather well with the ABC 1914-17-45% I do quite a few outboard propellers, but not always a lot of feedback from our customers? Happy Holidays, Mark Sholund

    .18 os tz air cooled engine pipe advise

    Stephen, I have plenty of pipes if you want to test some? In my testing there is no better way than to just go out and see how well they work on your set up. You should get better fuel if you want better performance. Let Me Know Please? Mark Sholund

    X650 PROP / X472 PROP

    Joseph, I would not waste the time on polishing the propellers unless it is for a static model. Polishing will throw off your balancing unless you continue to balance while polishing. It will also cause some cavitation on some applications. Another good tip is to have a metal lathe in your shop with a 3/16” or 1/4” drive dog installed and chuck it up in the lathe to make sure the blade lengths are even. This will save you hours in the balancing of your work. Keep up the good work! Happy Holidays, Mark Sholund

    X650 PROP / X472 PROP

    Piro, The removing of the front leading edge or tongue of the propeller is not a Texas-Cut. The Texas-Cut is more of a straight cut down the leading edge of the propeller blade. Along the leading edge that you show in your picture as the (spoon and cup area). This area will also control your leading edge pitch numbers. Your trailing edge (lift area) is the area that we cup the trailing edge on in the older style propellers. Your picture is more of a older style propeller design. Some of the new designs are a lot different. Your Barr-Cut should be cut at the same angle as your trailing edge surface angle. You have some interesting (pitch areas) in your picture as well as your (lift area). Keep Testing And Learning About Different Propeller Designs. Thanks For The Pictures, Mark Sholund
