    BBlades props

    Anyone have ant experience with these props? I like the test program wondering about the quality of the propellers.

    I ran them on my 25 liberator and also have one I use on my stv sometimes. Run well. Never had any issues.

    I used the program once to try a Blaster. Even with the S&H to and from BBlades and the $55 per test fee, its still cheaper than a $1k+ stainless anchor that you will probably sell at a loss if its not what you wanted or expected. + the advise & phone support is free.

    I have had them work bravo 1 props for my 300xs/cougar and now checkmate. I had purchased props new and had them do the work over winter after getting good base line all summer. They offer a "sale" January since that's their slow time for lab work. Sign up for their news letter.

    I'd be careful... you get 15 days from the time they ship it to get it BACK to them. I recently had a parcel take 11 days to come to FL from Indiana. FedEx, UPS, USPS, it doesn't matter. They are ALL having problems these days.

    I've bought and sold 23 boats in 27 years. I fix them up and then get bored and look for another. It's a hobby but I've learned a LOT about boats along the way. And I still don't know chit.

    I hear that I've been waiting for some water pumps I ordered for weeks supposed to have been shipped.

    Depends where you live as well. With insurance, shipping from SC to Wisconsin was around $40 one way, so around $135 to test a prop. If you live near Wisconsin it is a good deal. If I buy a new one, and it is still in new condition after 30 minutes of testing, I would think that I could sell if for $100 less than I paid, so close to a wash for me.

    Can ship props anywhere in USA for under $30 insured. Use shipbikes.com or go to UPS.com and set up an account. Use promo code EASY for a decent discount on UPS. I've shipped maybe 20 props all under $30 insured for 6 to 7 hundred. Shipbikes is great for lots of large packages. It's a reseller for fedex ground with a significant discount.
