Ww2 or batmowheel

Has anyone done any testing between the two wheels.
I've got a powermax that I've installed a batmowheel on a couple years ago.

Would there be any benefit for me to install a single plane 11 blade ww in it instead.

All the hype is starting to get to me. Lol

I'm perty happy with the batmowheel but just wondering if I'm leaving anything on the table by not going to the new 11 blade wheel.

I would say no to the batmowheel... they have gotten some pretty bad reviews, but they were ok when they were the only option.

EDITED to delete false info

I believe and I could be wrong that the WW2 for the powermax is a single plane I know the stock replacement WW2 are dual plane.I got the MTW single plane for my powermax havn't installed it yet but that would be my choice versus the dual plane

While I haven't ran a batmowheel, I have ran the wheel that Charlie listed in the link and compared it to the wheel used in the Stage 1 (they are not the same) and I actually like the current Stage 1 wheel better. I felt that the spool up was quicker and that the cruising EGTs were lower too. This of course is me running my stand by SPD tune for each.

I have done back to back runs with a 7x7 vrs a 11b. This was on a 59mm stock charger. Maf , boost and egts all suggest the 11 blade is superior until full boost and the they are sixes.. throttle response was better and did not seem to back fart as much.. the differences were subtle but noticable.
I would believe results would be similar with the 63.5... ???

He already has a batmowheel guys. IMO there isn't ENOUGH difference between the Batmo and a WWII or an MTW 11 blade to make it worthwhile. Either is a better choice than the cast stock wheel but the flow isn't going be be that much different than the Batmo.
