Adjustable pitch prop

If the Pro Pulse is new brand for you, check out www.propulse.se
They make adjustable pitch props and from the web site you can find some tests of the Pro Pulse props.

I'm thinking of bying one or two

...well if these props work under the same principal of the variable pitch props on ships then they should be OK.
I spoke to the Falcon lads in SAfrica and they use the jackplate this company produces on their racing RIB.
They are happy with it.
If these props do not cost the earth I will order one SS 23" pitch for my 200 VMax.
Will let you know for the results.

Cheers

Torqueshift

Hi, Yeh, 2 forums at once, a bit of a coincidence indeed. The torqueshift loves jumping waves. It also is designed for V4's and V6's. Mine's on my 6.5 metre 200hp. It makes landing nice and soft 'cause you keep drive as the prop re-enters the water.
It also drive you up the back of a wave when everyone else is slowong down.

Ask me another. JW

JW, thanks for replying to my email about the Torqueshift prop. I am replying to you here because I think there may be others who would like to know it won't work for them either.

I did actually get an answer to my email to Land and Sea in the States and they said the same as you - that it won't work for a slow turning diesel engine. This is because there is not enough centrifugal force. In essence they said their prop is designed to allow sports boats to pull up water skiers easily without losing top-end speed.

Seems a shame that us diesel types can't take advantage of what is obviously a brilliant piece of engineering.

Thanks again, Jeff.

Cheers.

I've just checked out the propulse website (although there is nothinbg there for my tiddler). What a damned good website. Clear instructions and pictures, very good if you are buying one of their props.
