Hung Shen propellers

Does anybody have any experience with Hung Shen propellers? Considering one for my trawler. Trying to gauge the quality.

My Nordhavn came with one, as do most if not all Nordhavns. I'm no expert, but it seems good. I do know one sister-boat who had a singing sound coming from his prop at certain RPMs. Ultimately they replaced the prop and problem solved.

Don't know the brand but I used AHOY in New Orleans to obtain a new 32 square 4 blade he ordered from Taiwan and it is excellent and not pricey.

I would be wary of an Indian or mainland China prop cast from scrap.

Where is it made?

They are either China or Taiwan made. Supposed to be metal wise of good quality, just not sure of the casting machining quality. Were supposed to be what most Taiwan trawlers were shipped with to the USA.
