What about carrying a spare that is an opposite of what is on now. That way when you break foward gear you replace the prop and run in reverse. I know a guy who breaks his bravos, switches props, and runs in reverse all the time. I'm not going to metion names though.

I carry a spare prop also. Mounted in a prop holder in the engine compartment to the back of the back seat. It's just an aluminum Michigan Wheel 19", but it will do the job if needed. Thankfully, it has never even been wet. I usually do what someone above said, break something that would make me WISH it was just a broken prop!!!!

Kook-that's an unknown. But, I do know that it didn't have any visual defects when I mounted it.
