New prop??

Post by Oleboy87 » Sat Feb 22, 2014 6:49 pm

Going to get a new prop soon. I am currently running a 70" 3 blade H and I am wanting to get a 2 blade I have heard a lot of good reviews on the new NGQ I was debating on that or the whirl wind whisper tip what do you guys think?? I am running a sv 540 with 9:1 pistons.

Try the 72" I run the 74" NGQ and love it. It is close to the best of both worlds. Call Brian at Quick Slick he sells them. His number is 863-581-9710.

I have been running the 74" whisper tip on a IO520 and great prop extremely tough prop but was also thinking about that NGQ but a little nervous about the winglets are they fragile?

NGQ all the way. Whisper tip is the same as the Q. Decent push on the bottom , sucks everywhere else!

The winglets are plenty strong enough to chop up oak limbs. I tested them out today. You won't be disappointed with the NGQ I promise

I got a 76 NGQ sitting in my back room waiting for the motor to be done.
480 you serious about them winglets being that tuff? Is the prop everything they say or what? Any negatives?

Tony now that you've tested the 72, 74 & 76 NGQ, which one are you going to stick with?

Can you comment on each one? Snap, cruise, ground running & wot! thanks

What do you think I was joking? I had some oak limbs about 2" in diameter get in to it today and there wasn't a mark on it.

I'm sure I will keep the 76" on. They all cruise good and have tremendous low end but the 76" is an animal down low. It doesn't need to be turned hard to be effective. In fact at 2850 you are over spinning it. I run it like that last weekend and it had lots of low end grunt but was loud as hell after 2750 or so. Put some pitch in it yesterday and was turning it 2750 and it still has great bottom end and not near as loud. Still playing with the pitch and motor angle. I'll keep ya posted. But to spin a 76" with any kind of pitch, it's gonna take a strong 6 cylinder that's for sure

I don't have pitch marks on mine. They were the first blades made. I use a digital protractor to aet the pitch. But I have 8° degrees in it.

Sounds about right. I'm turning the 74" at 11.5 degrees out at the end of the blade and I'm turning it 2850. I don't have marks on mine either. Is it worth grabbing a long hub and trying it?

Toney, mine is a injected stock rebuilt 0520 angle valve I was told they are same as 0540 angle valve injected right at 300 hp I have the room to go either 74" or 76" I just want ground running power don't care about speed I just have heard a lot of good things about these NGQ but up till now it didn't seem like changing from whisper tip to a Q or power shift made that big of a difference for amount of money spent but the talk is this new NGQ really does seem like its worth it better, than all the rest?

Yep billybob that's what I was turning my 74". Our numbers have been about the same. I'm going to put some more pitch in the 76" and try it again. If you just are worried about the low end hill running get a 76" if your motor will spin it
