This contract needs to be filled out and submitted once consultation has been completed with a BBLADES associate to determine your desires versus BBLADES agreement as to the potential to achieve those goals and taking into consideration current test prop inventory.
BBLADES requires that you electronically sign a contract to ensure that all terms and conditions are understood properly by the customer who is testing the Propeller/ Spacer Plate. Once signed, the contract will apply to the customer for the whole calendar year. Also, we encourage you print off our testing form. This way you will have all the information you need for the professionals at BBLADES to further assist you in your testing process.
Our test program is based upon the availability of products. We only have some Mercury Stock Propellers in our program due to availability.
