BBlades Professional Propellers is teaming up with Hering Propellers on an exclusive “BBlades/Hering Offshore Cleaver Propeller Demo Program.” According to a press release from BBlades, the new program is the only one of its kind to offer demo propellers for surface drives and high-performance stern drives.
Here’s how the program works: For a $200 per-propeller fee plus shipping and a refundable deposit, BBlades will send Hering Offshore Cleaver propellers to interested customers. The customer will have 15 days to test-run the props. (The 15-day window includes the return of the propellers to BBlades if the customer doesn’t want to purchase them.)
The Hering wheels are offered in five pitches, five diameters and two rake angles. Interested customers will work with BBlades staff members to choose the props best suited for their application.
Customers who decide to buy the demo propellers can handle the transaction over the phone and simply keep them. Customers who don’t get the results they want can return the propellers to BBlades, which will consult with them and send another set of props if desired. Customers are responsible for repair and replacement costs in the event the propellers are damaged during their 15-day test period.
The program will be limited to customers in the continental United States.
“We pride ourselves in offering the absolute best customer service,” says Brett Anderson of BBlades in the press release. “Our customers’ desire for expanding The BBlades Prop Demo Program to include offshore cleaver-style propellers and the cooperation of Hering Propellers has made that desire a reality.”
