That's cool. A tad bit infomercialish at the end. Perhaps excitement, perhaps not.

Its definitely new and unique. It'll be interesting to see the level of adoption it gets and the applications it comes out for (duoprop). I didn't watch the end of the video, but the price and reparability come to mind. CAD and CNC machining makes stuff like this realistic from a manufacturing perspective.

Thanks for sharing. If I could get a set for our boat to try and they could be purchased for a reasonable premium over normal SS I would be interested.

I've seen this on two other boating forums and I'm impressed. I submitted a question to them asking about price and availability for a 30" prop. No response after 5 days.

Great Sacandaga Lake Mayfield,...
Hi all,

I just ran across the post. The numbers are astonishing. So too is the price. The stainless prop is $9000.00 and the aluminum prop is $4500.00. I dont see the recreational market supporting this kind if expense.
I went on their website and it appears the only make a 15 inch diameter prop. I didn't look at pitch.

Great prop and if I ever hit the lotto I might try one.
