Another Happy Customer
I finally got the new prop on the boat and got to test it out this weekend. All I can say is WOW!!!!
All performance increases aside, the sound of the prop is so much better. It finally sounds like a real airboat and not an angry weed-eater like it did with the [Brand X]. If the sound was the only advantage over the [Brand X], I’d still be happy.
With the old prop, my boat wouldn’t run dry at all, the boat would just stop as soon it left the water. Now with the new prop, the first time I got to some dry ground I floored it and the boat just took off accelerating like it NEVER would before. I can start and stop on dry ground with ease.
I’m very pleased all around with how my boat is performing with the new prop. Thanks again for all of the help.”

New - QuickChange™ Hub
Whirl Wind set the industry standard 20 years ago with the introduction of our QuickChange™ hub system that included the first blade pitch indicator engraved right on the hub in addition to our exclusive through-bolt hub safety design.
