    Mick I don't think you can get a 6 blade hub from Multiwing. Craft often use a nine blade hub with six blades or a 12 blade hub with 6 blades, this is what you may of seen. in the nine blade hub, blades will be unevenly spaced as you will have 3 pairs of blades with a space between each pair..

    Hi Mick,



    Ken Rigley does a six blade hub but I think it is for a larger blade profile than you are currently using.



    Give him a ring and ask him I reckon.



    Cheers

    Yes you can get a 6 blade Multi-Wing hub but these are for the huge 7W type blades and a hub is going to set you back around 200 compared to a 9 blade hub for 5Z blades at around 60 also the 7W blades are around 45+ each compared to 5Z blades at around 15 each so you pays your money and takes your choice but on the whole most will use a 9 blade hub and insert 6 blades if its only 6 they want to run. Now if you want to save quite a bit of money you could use Hascon blades and hub from Conair (see suppliers).
