prop dis-information ?



I recently E'd Michigan Wheel with a prop inquiry. Check out the reply their customer service rep sent. I'm glad she doesn't work for me!!

Dear Boating Enthusiast:

We would like to thank you for your interest in Michigan Wheel propellers. We have received and reviewed your analysis and have come to the following conclusion: There is no "ideal pitch" for any given application. The best pitch depends on your preference and performance. Any pitch is satisfactory if it causes your RPM to run within range at full throttle. If you increase your pitch, your RPM will decrease, and you will get more low end power. If you decrease your pitch, your RPM will increase, and you will get more top speed.

At least you received a reply. I had sent in an inquiry, and waited a couple of weeks, because they said it could take a week to ten days. Never did get a reply!
I searched for a local distributor to assist me and they did find a Ballistic prop that would work. I went to pick it up and it looked like it was used, or at least a rebuild job. I asked if they would knock 20 bucks off the price and the guy said he would return it instead. Not exactly great customer service!

It sounds like a valid response to me without knowing your question. Changing your prop gives you a specific effect, like more speed at lower RPM or better low- to mid-range power. You need to determine your expectations and study the props that would best fill that need.

What you meant was it sounds completely backwards. Increasing pitch decreases hole shot, decreases rpm, and raises top speed. Decreasing pitch raises rpm, raises holeshot, and decreases top speed.

I think you ought to buy the wrong prop based on the info you got....then sue them for giving you false information.......

That tech probably wasn't at full caffeine level for the day yet.

      don't know what roulette is? Hi. Roulette as I think is a very cool game. Roulette has been played since the nineteenth century and every self-respecting casino, including online casinos, be sure to have it in their assortment https://aolbroadband.in/ .Games for free, which the guys provide on this site, of course, include the most popular varieties of roulette: American, European and French. The online version of roulette is no different from the well-known one from land-based casinos: it features a green table with marked numbers and betting fields, as well as a wheel with numbered cells on which the ball rotates. On this site you can learn more and even play it

      In addition to to Feichao, you can also consider the DJI Mini SE. This is also an excellent piece. However, always try to read articles and thorough reviews before buying.

      My grandmother is a very old person, and she has had a real estate company for 20 years now, she has dedicated her whole life to it, so she does not understand much about technology and is looking to modernize her business, she is one of the few real estate companies that They don't have their own application, so I see myself in charge of finding a good software developer for real estate and that type of business. Do you know any professional or company that is dedicated to it?

      Don't forget about IP Lures just west of town about 2 miles on the south side of Co. 82.    I was out on Osakis last week for a couple hours. Picked up two walleyes, one about 13" and the other a fat 14-1/2". Also a couple northerns and a handful of perch.

      Of course, you shouldn’t even ask about this, because this is the responsibility of the executor of the order, that is, the employee who will create such an application. I think it will be stated in the contract of employment if there is one and then you don't have to ask for anything.

      Shallow. Got skunked tonight. Just got chased off by the weather. Last evening was the only time the last 4 times out I caught fish. Last even was light drizzle and calm water. Water warmed up about 3-1/2 degrees since the first time out.

      It is very important not only to identify mushrooms by their appearance but also to understand whether it is useful or not, because now there are many poisonous mushrooms, and it is extremely important that no mistakes were made in the selection of such mushrooms. That's why I here https://www.mushrooms.online/mushroom-poisoning/ read a lot of interesting information about poisonous mushrooms and was able to understand more about it. I hope that I was able to help you and was really helpful to learn.
