Zapcat/thundercat prop wanted!

I'm looking for a new or used propeller for my thundercat. Currently running a 15p power tech but it's too worn now so looking to replace it.

Looking for something with a slightly higher pitch to give better top end speed.

This is my current one...

Why not just send your prop to Steel Developments? They will tidy it up and re pitch it as well if you want, fraction the cost of a new one.

Had a chat with someone who did some work for power tech. He measured it up and it's lost 4mm of it's blade size & would cost around £130 to get sorted an still wouldn't be like new

Luke..how about a drive to see steel dev and show it to them. They have a very good rep and are as close as you can sensibly get..... Cheaper than a new one and will be as good as new....

I've had a few people say about them so might be worth a shout. They're over in stirminster Newton aren't they?

I'll weigh up my options. Getting a quote from darglow for some new props

What do people think of Ron hill and signiture props? I know Ron hill need to be worked before any good but I can get one for £180 then worked for £60 so works out cheaper.

I have also found a 16p signiture for similar price but don't know anything about these.
