You wasted your money. IMO

I have a cat that used them. Great for sailing. Unfortunately they produce a vibration when going forward and produce NOTHING when going in reverse, including propulsion. You'll learn to hate this.

I'm now using Kiwi feather props. Great reverse, great forward and great sailing. Blade replacements are very cheap in case you damage it.
