    I like the concept of the flex fan............low rpm's the blades are more curved pushing more air,then when the r's increase the blades flatten out and "give back" some horsepower!

    i like the low rpm thing but some times i have to go to the higher rpms to get over some rocks or if i'm in a good mode help poeple pull there rigs back onto there rubber. well i can just play around with it. it runs a bit cool anyways.

    Hell, if you've already got both, try each one for a while and see which works out better for you.
