Default Re: Herring Props.....

Im am currently running a set of 34P 6 Blade Hering's on my boat. They are by far the best propeller I have ever run. I originally ran a 5 blade prop from another company, and could not keep the props together, they broke every time out. The company blamed it on too much horsepower, or too high of a X dimension. I ended up buying a set of the 6 blade Hering's and have not had a problem since. I also tried the 5 blade Hering and had the same perfect trouble free results. I was gernading a drive every 3 trips out and propellers almost every trip out, since changing to the Hering's I have not had any problems including drive issues. My driving habits have not changed, only the props. Alot of companies will tell you there props are the same metal and this and that. The truth is, nothing I have tried works better then my Hering's. They are worth the money and the props show it time and time again.

Cool Re: Herring Props.....

I've tried both Herring and Mercury on my boat. I found a huge plus in the Herrings. Yes sometimes Jimmy takes a bit of time, but I have had phone calls from him at his shop, 11pm, letting me know the status on my props. Look at it this way, he's a busy boy and you can't rush fine art! I will second 3DO, he was cracking props from his previous prop supplier, as well as breaking drives, put the herrings on and no more issues. To much horsepower, please, those are Teague motors!
