Re: Props – fixed, feathering, folding?


Hi Paul,

Fitted a 3 bladed Flex-o=Fold prop last year and as Steve says it makes a big difference to the sailing performance, it feels much smoother in ahead, but not so quick to stop the boat as my old fixed 3 blade.

Perhaps not as good value as the Kiwi Prop!! I bought direct from Flex-O-Fold around  £1400.

There are a number of comparisons on various sailing web sites and several sailing magazines have carried out tests.

Good luck
