Default Prop question

First off I joke around alot and hope no one is offended by my wierd sense of humor. I crack myself up most of the time

On a serious note. Props how long do you let someone try a 1000.00 + set of props.
Thanks Thumper

I've ben fortunate enough that several people have let me test props before purchase. One set I knew right away that I wanted them and paid the guy, another set I wasn't sure about but the guy wanted them back quickly so they went back(In hindsight I wish I had bought them), the third took me a second day out on the water to determine how they performed and then sent them back. In all 3 cases I was in contact with the sellers at least twice a week, confirm their arrival, how tests went, and how/when they would be shipped back.

These are just the shipped props, local guys have let me test a number of props too. All 3 of the above were in my possession no more than 2 weeks.

no problem, Props have been on my mind lately......I've got a set of approx 32.5/33 bravos that I had worked but ended up buying some labbed 32's that work even better. I've been thinking about selling them and looking for a set of 30 Bravos (prefered labbed) since they spin ALOT more rpm's at WOT giving me alittle more top end.

I would think 2-3 weeks would be plenty of time.
