Seems to be marketing without independent testing.

Given we have been making props for quite some time now Id be surprised if anyone can come up with somthing new/better.

New and better marketing, sure. New and better prop design..............not convinced yet.

What the hell is it made of? 1/3rd the weight of Ali? Is that just because there's almost no metal and its mostly a plastic hub?

I had to laugh about the emphasis on graphics and colors...

Kind of an interesting ad. 1/3 the wt. of aluminum, yet an alloy - some titanium alloy, perhaps? If that were the case, you wouldn't need the advanced corrosion protection they tout. Other than that, it appears to be a lot of solutions for problems that don't exist.

Jack; if you look at phones, the biggest advertising draw after the brand name is the availability of colors.

Plastic Sleeve - "Reduces injury to humans and aquatic life"

I have a feeling, even at idle, that's going to hurt.

The redirection of the flow into the hub MIGHT make a few % improvement.

But based on the ad which shows only a computer generated graphic I wonder if any have been manufactured yet?

Would be net resting to see a test (a proper comparative test)
