Arrived timely. Works well.

I buy aluminum props knowing that they'll get beat up easily. Don't expect the strength of SS and you won't be disappointed.
Propeller reviewed on Jul 10th, 2016
Clean smooth surfaces. Painting is complete with a nice gloss. Easy to install. Performs much better than the old prop.

My boat is as quick as new againn
Propeller reviewed on Jul 4th, 2014
The prop and hub kit fit perfectly and by speed and RPM appears to be the right pitch. It had plenty of bite when on plane, but trolling at low RPMS it makes a singing noise which I'm told is cavitation. The boat never did that before this prop. I did not change pitch or diameter so I can only think it's in the design of the prop somewhere.
Propeller reviewed on May 10th, 2014
The prop design is nice with the replaceable hub. It means I can buy another prop cheap without having to buy another hub. Boat ran great with new prop and I was really happy until I noticed that the ring at the back of the prop has come loose and shifted. Now I have to make the calls and chase the warranty. This would be a five rating if not for this quality issue.

Exactly as advertised and an exact replacement for the damaged one my boat came with. Easy installation.

Product shipped as described and on time. A little mix up in shipping location, but iboats customer service corrected this quickly.
Propeller reviewed on Sep 29th, 2013
Durable finish and well balanced. Performs well and no vibration throughout engine speed range. Everything about this prop shows good quality.
Propeller reviewed on Sep 17th, 2013
This was a direct replacement for what was on the boat, got this along with the hub kit so I could try different props. This prop is smooth, help me get on plane quicker and the boat just feels much more powerful. Also seems to run quieter at speed.

was running a 17 x 15 vortex on my 3.0 mercury 140hp inboard. Was over revving to about 4900 as my engine model recommended WOT is 4200-4600. I know I needed to pitch up to 19 so I did and it brought the WOT down to 4500 full throttle absolutely perfect. Speed increased and hole shot only was a second or two longer to get up on plane. Very happy and highly recommended for boaters with similar specs as my 19 foot open bow. 21 pitch is too much unless you are on a lake with only one other person and not a full tank. It takes a long time to get up on plane towing someone. 19 is perfect and is the factory recommended pitch. Happy boating

when i first recieved the prop it looked great. then when i went t put the prop on i was going by the directions. big mistake. i found that you are not suppose to use the washer from the old prop on the out side of prop. good thing the guy next door is a boat mechanic. then when using the boat i did notice there was alot of flex in the prop and it did have a hard time getting my four winns freedom up on plain. so i got a stainless prop and it took care of the problem so i will use this one as a back up. i doo like the 2 piece design!!

Propeller reviewed on Jun 2nd, 2013
I bought this as a direct replacement for a damaged prop that was on my Rinker Captiva 190 when I bought it. I was worried because the boat did not plane quickly. After replacing the prop there was an immediate increase in power and the boat went to plane much quicker. For the price and performance you cannot beat this deal from Michigan Wheel.
Propeller reviewed on May 13th, 2013
This prop was priced right, a good quality product, shipping was super fast and the customer service rep. went way above and beyond to make sure I was getting what I wanted and needed. Ive ordered from IBOAT befor and have always have had a pleasant experience. I'll be back. Steve C

I bought this to replace the OEM prop ony 1997 Chaparral 180 LE. The original prop had a large dogbite out of it from a rock (previous owner), the finish was wearing out, and when I pulled it the hub looked pretty rough. So I decided to go with this kit for a number of reasons: Michigan Wheel has been doing this for a long time and have a great reputation, It comes with a new hub and washers, The pitch is slightly lower than OEM to help with home shot and towing. Additionally, I bought it from iBoats because they had it all kitted for less than anyone else on the web or local marinas. My order was shipped and to my door in three days! If for some reason you have never placed a web order for anything let me say welcome to the world of convenient Internet shopping, and three days is FAST. First Impression was that it looked like a nice aluminum prop. The fit and finish were good, and all the parts and pieces were there and in order. There is not much in the way of specific instructions for installation, but honestly changing a prop is pretty simple. YouTube it if you're having trouble. You are going to need prop grease and either a prop wrench or a large socket...for the cost get a metal prop wrench: they have some handy extras and the plastic ones are pretty much junk. Now to actual installation. Everything went together smoothly, the included hub fit the prop and Alpha One Outdrive perfectly and I didn't end up needed the additional brass spacer I purchased. On the water, this prop has been great. The 19 pitch has improved my time to plane and makes towing a bit easier with the 3.0L. My only problem is that at WOT my rpm's want to run up to 5000 while my ideal range is around 4600. On the upside, I can throttle it back a bit and save a little gas even during those rare times when I'm running wide open. Overall, this has been a great prop that shipped fast at a great price, and it fits the Mercruiser Alpha One Outdrive perfectly.

I have already received the RA # and returned the prop to you as defective. The prop was off center and out of balance. I have had good return service in the past and would like to continue business with you in the future. Thanks, Dan

Ordering was easy and fast, received on time and no hassle to put on.
Propeller reviewed on Aug 20th, 2011
I received the prop only about 2 days after I ordered it. The instructions were well written and provided all the needed information. I installed it in 15 minutes using only a wratchet, socket, torque wrench, rubber mallet and screwdriver. Another reviewer compained about vibration after installing but I had no issues regarding that. Perhaps he had another problem unrelated to the propeller. Note: make sure you tap the plastic adapter sleeve all the way in to the prop housing with a rubber mallet before mounting or you will be turning your socket a lot longer until it is seated. Other than that, everything else is done as per the instructions. We took the boat out and were very happy with the performance and the paint did not peel off as I thought it might. This seems to be a quality prop and I would buy it again. Thanks.

Piece of . I spent more on this that the other options because I thought I would get a higher quality..... wrong . This prop flexes a lot more than he original OEM mercury 4 blade spitfire . Don't go cheap . I lost considerable power hole shot and 7 mph at top speed with this new prop. The chewed up original I was trying to replace was 5 mph faster than this brand new piece of . It will now become a paper weight. How can you people sell this . Unbelievable . I checked to see if the motor was missing a plug it was so slow . And he vibrations were terrible . I'm so disappointed I wasted 160 dollars .

iBoats has a great way to pick the correct prop for your boat. Once I ordered the correct prop it was in the mail the next day and at my house within I week. I was able to track the order while it was enroute.

I like the Michigan props because I can re-use the hub and keep the cost down, The new prop is great for speed. Top speed increased from 39.5 to 48 MPH. Great product.
Propeller reviewed on Sep 28th, 2016
Prop will work, just had to leave the original thrust washer in because the new was about a 1/4 inch to short, so the prop sits back a bit more than I like leaving about a 1/8inch gap between gearcase and plastic piece in between prop and gearcase. Other than that all good. Thanks
Propeller reviewed on Sep 28th, 2016
Being an Engineer, I have always believed in redundancy, or backup, for important parts of an operating system. I purchased this prop as my backup for my new pontoon boat with a Mercury outboard. Very pleased with the product and the price.
Propeller reviewed on Sep 24th, 2016
When purchasing a new prop, when it is not an OEM product, they should tell you what else is needed to attach to your specific motor. I had to purchase the drive mechanism (sold separately) and had to wait almost two weeks before I could install the prop.
Propeller reviewed on Sep 19th, 2016
I ordered this prop as a backup to one I'd ordered earlier to improve the performance of my fishing boat. The original prop worked so well, and I am so happy, that I ordered a second prop to take with me on fishing trips. (I learned the hard way what it means to be 500 miles from home and have a prop break on a rock in unfamiliar waters.) This prop arrived timely and in excellent condition. I've now had two excellent experiences with iboats, so plan to continue as a customer for future boating needs.

Nice fit and finish on prop. Easy to install on Volvo Penta Cobra Sx using XHS 205 Hub kit. 5000 rpm at WOT. A little slow out of the hole. Might try 19" pitch for better ski performance.

I purchased this prop for the lower pitch, the boat takes off faster, but have not had the chance yet to see if it gets my grand-daughter up faster on skies.

A great prop on my Force 70 pushing my pontoon. The cupping of blade works great
