Default Herring Props

Has anyone dealt with Herring since they sold. I know they have an exchange program now and a one year warranty on their props. Their Offshore props for #6's are very comparable in cost to Merc CNC, not to mention they look great!

I have always heard great things about them but wanted to know if anyone had any recent experience since their new owner took over?

I have and they are awesome. They are much easier to get a hold of and have called me back and emailed me several times. (even while they were in Miami at the show !)Their props are incredible and their customer service is second to none.

x2 vote for the new Hering company. Customer service is exceptional, and the product is simply amazing.

Think their props are excellent but don't agree that their customer service is any better than before the purchase. They have had a forged prop of mine for almost a year now - in for a repair - and nothing from them except promises. For those of you that dealt with Hering in the past, this is exactly how it used to be.
Left a message with Scott Conrad yesterday. Will see if that helps.

I wonder what contributed to the cost reduction.

They returned my phone call promptly and were very helpful answering questions.

It's my understanding that it sold out and became more of a "production" type operation instead of a custom shop. I do think they kept the original owner for R&D.

I recently bought a set for a project I'm doing. The props were too small so they told me to send them back immediately. They do not have the correct size in stock so they are building a set. So far I am very pleased with the quick responses from them. Would not hesitate to use them again.

Jeff @ Herring is a great guy I have dealt with him for years he's as good as they get.
