J series are made from a special high-strength aluminum alloy and squeeze casting process making the propellers stronger and more durable than traditional die-cast propellers. Four layers of paint ensures excellent corrosion protection performance
If your existing set are badly pitted, bent or the bushing worn, then its time to consider changing your props before they fail. A bent prop causes vibraton risking water entering the lower gear case, through the drivesshaft prop seals.
