Default Prop protectors?

I have been considering purchasing some covers for my props (Bravo 1),for both in the water and on trailer. I've looked at a couple made from neoprene to sunbrella. One company (propskin.com)doesn't return emails and their phone is disconnected,but their website is still up. Another in Cayote Do any of you use these? I have labbed props (very sharp) and kids and would like to be safe..Mike

I have a pair of the red Prop Gear covers and another pair looking for a home (send PM if interested). They're a fabric material, not hard like plastic, so the potential is there to still cut through and draw some blood. But they're definitely better than nothing.

Hit a log like I did this weekend. It rounded the leading edges of my prop. Hey that was a cheap fix for a nice and smooth, sharp, and dangerous edge on my prop!

I got one from Prop Guardian. When we're using the boat for family time, don't want the kids getting cut. Prop guardian was quick to respond, fast delivery, etc. I like it.
