    Best thing is to patent the design and sell the patent to bigger company that can increase production lower the price.

        For sure! A guy could buy quite a few regular props, or pay for a lot of "wasted?" lousy gas mileage for $9k...!!!

          There are companies that make plastic props, typically they are reinforced/mixed with fiberglass. This site http://comprop.com/ calls it a composite prop and apparently won't say exactly what the composite is made with...they do say this "The COMPROP is a composite propeller (please dont call it plastic)" and "Molded of a proprietary fiber-filled resin material"

              Put those puppies on barges and ferries and maybe the costs will go down

                Interesting prop for sure, on my 24' boat at 130 hours a year it would take about 8 years to see a return on the cost of a aluminum version. If the numbers are accurate and assuming 10% savings at $3.50 a gallon and at current GPH of 12. Fuel will likely go up, however I am not always burning 12 GPH. It would be great to try one out... The other advantage is endurance as refueling is not always a option.

                    Anyone buy one of these yet...? I am somehow on their email list and prices are now 2K for cast versions....
                    The only way this prop can deliver the promises made would be to have very low slippage... something like 5% would be outstanding... I dont see that data in any of their "PROP"o-gandof.....
                    I have emailed and asked them if they have slippage numbers, as of yet, no reply,
                    My slippage numbers are pretty low, slippage would have to be very low before there was any savings for me.
