WW says:

I can only refer you to the articles I wrote in WW, after testing the propellors twice- once on a narrowboat on the Nene (where to props were swapped over) and when we tested it on two identical Alvechurch hireboats- one with standard prop and one with an Axiom.
In my opinion, from the tests, there was a marked improvement in the handling of the boat with the Axiom, especially the wash, reversing power and confined space handling. Those who have bought an Axiom that I have spoken to sing their praises- including those who have "Traditional" boats, with slow running engines.
I am sure readers will have comments on that- but the articles are available for download (I think) from this site, if you don't have the back copies.
