Default Herring 5-Blades vs. Merc Props?

I'm looking for some input on Herring 5-Blade cleavers. Has anyone made a switch to them from Merc Props? Any noticeable difference in speed or handling? Currently spinning labbed 32's @~5400 rpm's on XR drives on a 37' with 650's.
Thanks.

Great prop's, they actually work too well. The bravo drive pushing a heavy load hooks up like tires on asphalt. Problem lies in the vertical and prop shafts not being able to keep up. Anybody else snapped a shaft ?

The Herrings are great props. Increased acceleration and bite are can be expected. However with these increases, it is also recommended that they be used on XR/XZ or B-Max Drives. It is not uncommon to see slight decreases in top end with these props.
