Ive got a 24 Mach 4 blade prop if anyone needs one

thks Tony, guess people always like trying other alternatives and not always listening to the experts, but guess what!!! they always come crawling back!!

looks like they dont do the mirage plus in a 21, starts at 23pitch..

is the only difference between the mirage and mirage plus the round vent holes on the hub of the prop?

Biggest Arms I have an old mirage 23 pitch at prop revolutions at cobbs, been trying to sell it for 3 years and almost forgotten about it!! lets try that one....

Tony, for my info, why would you need bow lift, if u can just trim the engine?

stern lift i guess is something you cant alter from the helm...

Hi Roofer, I have a 24 Mach four blade on my 24, I may be interested in a spare, what do you want for it?

There's a couple of miniscule nicks on prop so £150.

Cheers for the advice so far, Admiral, I will try that 23 Mirage out ... Also, can someone confirm my fears about the Vengence prop, are they dog poo?

Try the US ebay motors web site there are hundreds of second hand props for sale, with the dollar favourable at the mo it works out quite cheap even after shipping just got to check the seller will ship world wide.

Found a 21 Mirage Plus on ebay, rotates counterclockwise, is that correct? Can't remeber what mine looks like ... $299 ... Good price? Prop looks in good condition.

You will need a right hand prop unless you run in reverse.
