The original two blade Max-Prop was designed in the early 70's for the high tech racing boat. Since proving itself in the racing arena, the two blade classic Max-Prop has earned its way into the mainstream market as a leader of low drag propellers. While satisfying the racer with low drag, its efficiency under power in both forward and reverse is sure to please all. The Two Blade Classic's pitch can be adjusted to help achieve the maximum efficiency from the engine without having to purchase a new propeller.
In forward the Max-Prop Classic will offer 96% of the efficiency of a fixed blade propeller of the same diameter and pitch. The 4% loss in power can usually be eliminated by precisely matching the pitch of the Max-Prop to fit the boat engine combination.
The Max-Prop Classic provides 80% more power than a comparable fixed blade propeller. The Classic utilizes the same leading edge in forward as it does in reverse giving the propeller the same efficiency in both directions dramatically improving control and power in reverse.
All Max-Props have adjustable pitch settings. The Classic is adjustable in 2 degree increments. This can be done in minutes by disassembling it and reassembling it to the new configuration.
Under sail the Max-Prop Classic will increase sailing speed by about 15%, the largest difference being noticed when sailing in light air. When sailing with a fixed propeller the vessel has to overcome the drag propeller, installing a Max-Prop Classic reduces drag and maximizes sailing performance.
