Wonder what the cost will be and if the fuel payback time would be worth the investment.

I don't believe these props will be priced at a "premium". I would expect them to fall in between a stock aluminum and a stainless cost.

Very cool tech, no tip vortices. Also more thrust and control at low speed. Not such a game changer for small fishing boats but the larger the craft the bigger the enhancement.

Hope you're right, Windy. Read some reviews and the test model was an AL hogout. Big bucks, there. There will be some hurdles to overcome in manufacturing that will not be trivial. Once overcome, you're price projection should be right.
