York all the way... I just got my 24 Bravo 1's back and I don't want to put them on the boat! They look too pretty! I will be doing a speed run this weekend and will post the results, but I am confident in performance. Turn around time for me was 8 biz days.

"Tommy" at Warlock Performance Marine in California said that they have tried many other lab finished props from several other props shops, but haven't found anyone more consistant and with better results than York Propeller. They were willing to try the others in the past, but have always come back to York-----at least for now anyway. You all can call Tommy at WPM and get the scoop from him---he's pretty straight forward. 909-371-7567

I'm pretty sure "Audacity" Joe now uses York for his personal boat and his race boat at this time. Perhpas he may have some input here.

Kamma, Enticer,
Sorry to hear about your bad Exp. with Mercury. I have only had good luck with the props they have worked on. I thought I read an piece done in HB, a shoot out of sorts between Merc. and some other Co.s, and Merc. came out the fasteset on Props

Called John @ York last night about my problem. I was very pleased with conversation with him. One thing I liked about what he said was with the HP I was running he did not like to thin the blades 2 much.

Last weekend friend of mine threw a blade on his lab finished (by Mercruiser) prop. We started checking into why & was told since we got more than 2 years (2 years & some months) on a labed prop we were lucky it lasted that long. I never knew getting a prop lab finished made it so weak that you need to replace them every other year.

After this weekend I will be sending my prop off to him.
