well....I think that if they can produce the thrust you need ...and that you don't have a V8..should be fine..they are similar to the piranha props....

I dunno... looks good but I've never actually heard any good reports of them from the field. Same with the variable pitch props...

An ally prop is like £90, then £30 per repair... so I'm not sure it really works out any cheaper.

I really rate the 4 and 5 blade SS props above all else and have testimonial on testimonial from fellow boaters who also love 'em...

Does that mean they were all bad reports then?

The reason I liked the pro pulse ones is because they are 4 blade, piranha seem to only do a 3 blade for my boat. Plus they are vastly more expensive here in the UK than the US

And I like the variable pitch bit

Not necessarily bad reports... just very few, and no one blown away by them.

I really am a strong believer in a decent quality higher blade count stainless prop. Something like a 4-5 blade SS from Merc or Solas will always be a decent investment... plus if you buy it from someone like steeldevelopments.co.uk they'll repitch it for free

Just my 2 cents...

like BR...i'd rather see you go with a SS prop than a plastic one....I've just not heard anything one way or the other about them....
