I have a Kougar with a Rossi 40 coupled with the Evo version of the Jett muffler and have recorded 110 MPH on a GPS device along for the ride. The Rossi is a brute for a 40.

Sig is now the exclusive distributor for Seagull Models

The announcement appears on both sigmfg.com and seagullmodels.com

You're right about that Jim. They either need to revamp their web site or find more retail outlets to carry their product. Manufacturers and distributors are notorious for clunky web sites.

I didn't like my TF balancer either. Bought a Dubro Tru-Spin and it works much better. The Dubro seems to be much more precise. Anybody want to buy a TF prop balancer?
