Default BBlades Prop locks

Boy these are really trick ordered 2 for my bravos and 1 for my blackhawk
They make the McGuad lock look agricultural
Also you still use the tang washed versus the Belville washer which you have to check for tightness a few times a season

When we talked to Brett at the show, he said that the #6 drive prop locks were do to be finished very soon as well. Once you see them in person, the really make the McGuard locks look out dated.

This sounded like a good product and I really respect the guys at BBlades so I wrote it up, http://www.boats.com/boat-content/20...peller-lock-2/. But obviously I haven't seen one "in action."

So I'm really, really glad to hear someone who actually bought it is pleased.

I had found with my McGuard I would retorque my props every few weeks as one would come loose
Not loose enought to lose a prop but definitly looser

Not only that, Bret is a stand up guy, always takes the time for questions and answers.
