Default Prop help. Veem or Michigan

38 Henriques El Bravo. I want to get new nibral props and use my current props as back ups. They are 24” x 28”. Any suggestions on brand?

I have 4 blade Acmes on my 36 Bertram I like. That being said, You can’t go wrong with Veem.

I did the VEEMS and the change was impressive. Pricey yes, but it was worth every penny. Zero vibration and the midrange I was looking for.

Which Veems did you use? My guy is recommending the constellations I believe.

Another vote for the Veems. Michigan was falling behind when I bought the Veems don’t know if they have caught up by now. Veems are very smooth in comparison to my old Michigans.

hands down Veem. like other have said they are so damn smooth and have variable cup/pitch from the factory. Just make sure you have someone local that is Veem certified and has Prop Scan. The cool thing is that those guys will have all the OEM specs and can put them back to 100% if you have an issue. I used to pull mine every haul out and have Treasure Coast check and polish them. Never once had to have them worked on.

I have Acme Nibral's on my 38 and love them. They are class 1 out of the box. Call Atlantis Propeller in New Jersey. The owner is a great guy and will take care of you.
