I have never heard that one before. From all I can tell, it seems to be a brand.

I think it means "Continuosly Variable Pitch". To the best of my knowledge, they are only available for outboard engines and I/O's, but I could be wrong. Torque-pitch is one brand that claims to have a prop that gives you both torque for out of the hole and still hold a top end by shifting the position of the blade real time.

I thought thats what it ment, I have a four blade stainless prop now and last year I sent it out for reconditioning and when it came back they ask were I got it because it is a variable pitch prop and it must have been special order, I seen a couple used ones on ski it agains web site.The one I have is for sure because they gave me a graff of the pitch curve from tip to hub, looking to get a spare, Thanks, I'll go check them out in more detail now

I thought that might be it, but the one I saw on ski-it-again was for inboards.
