Thanks,
Rob

I am in need of a 3 blade 34X14 or close to it do any of these people make one?
I ordered a 34X14 from Fuchs without the 342 holes so I hope to have it in a few weeks.

Guys,

Thanks for your replies! I guess the list is still short and I thought that there would be many more than that. It just seems like there should be more but that is ok.


pitviper51,

I don't really have information as to where many or all of these props can be purchased, I was just curious as to how many options we have out there. I am looking my self at different props for my plains but I am wiling to list them in the future if I can find them. I will keep that in mind as I begin to look throught them.

Thanks.
Rob
