I'm just waiting for someone to hit one of my props while swimming and it bothers me. I'm running 16.5X 36 Merc 5 blades on NXT drives. Will any of these covers fit my props??
Thanks much.

I use the one from BBlades. Works great and very easy to put on.

I've seen people in our area just take a "swimming noodle" and put a slice down the center, then wrap around the prop using the the ear points to hold it on and cut the extra length off? I haven't had any experience with this but have seen it a few times and seems to be a cheap way out and easy to do is you need something quick.
