Propeller reviewed on Jun 27th, 2020
I purchased this prop in order to reduce "WOT" rpm w/o loosing power on the holeshot and maintaining proper rpm at crusing speed. It fit the bill perfectly, thx for the WIDE selection of props to choose from.

Prop works great. Awesome holeshot and great top end.

Changed from a 14.5x19p 3 blade prop on my tiara 2700 with twin merc 260's due to not being able to run proper wot rpm's after converting to an offshore fishing boat and adding considerable weight. I was looking for better cruising speeds and better hold in rough seas. The 14.5x17p 4 blades deliver exactly what I was thinking they would. I picked up nearly 300 rpm's wot leading to an increase in top speed from 42 to 44 mph while allowing me toward the top end of my wot specs and the boat performs better across the board. Big difference in trim capability and ride stability due to the increased stern lift which is very prominent. Only thing I can say I'll miss over my 3 blades is dock handling because the props give more thrust forward than in reverse so to pivot I have to rev the reverse engine to keep up with the forward engine to truly pivot in place but I'm sure I'll get used to it in no time. I read reviews on the 4 blade vs 3 blade props for days prior to making the decision and my conclusion is I made the right choice, the advantages of 4 blades far outweigh and negatives for my application. I would have to say anyone not running a race boat would much prefer the 4 blade props many advantages over the 3 blades possible few mph advantage. The first time you take a really tight corner and stay on plane without cavitating you'll understand just how much grip these props have. I even tested running in rough chop with the trim tabs fully deployed and plowing water with them and the 4 blades power right through only dropping a few mph while allowing a comfortable ride in some rough water. So far I'm really impressed now let's just hope for the trifecta with some better fuel economy which I haven't measured yet and I'll go from satisfied to ecstatic.

So far so good. This was very easy to swap out. Slid right on without an problem. This is on a heavy 23ft deck boat and it now plans out much faster. Shipping time was as expected just a few days. I recommend always change out on dry land. Not in the water

product was packaged properly and arrived undamaged as a result--have 5.7 mercruiser in a 1997 Bayliner 2252--lowered rpm by 600 and increased my hole shot ,now travel at 25 mph @ around 2400 rpm--top speed 35 mph @ 3600 rpm--product performs excellently

This prop works great on my boat. It hooks up good in the corners and comes out of the hole good. Nice finish on it.

Needed low end pulling power for our family's boat. Came stock with the 3 blade 19" pitch prop and bolted this on for immediate results. It did take some top end speed away, but seeing as how we always have a boat full of small kids, speed is never a priority. Great value

I'm running this prop on a 19ft deep hull blue fun and a 130hp mercruiser engine. It does well to get up on plain fast but is easy to overspin the prop when the boat is loaded down heavy.

Replaced a 3 blade aluminum prop with a 19in pitch with this 4 blade with a 17in pitch. Must faster out of the hole. Highly recommend. Did not lower top end much, and now motor runs at the suggested RPM (4400) at wide open thottle. New prop looks great, and its convenient that it has the hub built right in.

I bought the 14.5"x17" 4-blade for my 2007 Hurricane SD195 with a Mercruiser 4.3L v6 and AlphaOne outdrive to replace the prop that came on the boat from new. I was having an issue with the old prop, 14.5"x19" 3-blade, where the boat would not plane until about 32 MPH and I would loose plane if I dropped below 28 MPH. This posed a problem when I had the boat loaded with people, let alone when I was trying to pull one or two people on a tube behind it. After ordering the prop and receiving it, in perfect shape and very fast (Thanks iBoats.com). I installed it and finally got on the water with it this past weekend. What a difference! It feels like a completely different boat now. I had 5 people and the dog in the boat and 2 people on the tube in the back and it handled excellent. I can now corner the boat hard and not slack the rope to the tube. The only thing that I have found is that I have to watch my RPMs as I am cruising at WOT because they will exceed the recommended. I may have been able to go with an 18" or 19" pitch but watching the RPMs is OK with me. I did loose about 5 MPH top end but I rarely run that fast and 5 MPH i not much for what I use the boat for. All in all I feel the prop was a great investment.

Shipping was very fast. I bought this 4 blade 17 pitch prop to replace the 3 blade 19 pitch prop my boat had. I float a 1977 four winns marquise with a 3.0 mercruiser (there are pics of the boat somewhere on this site I believe). I bought this prop because I use my boat primarily to pull skiers or tubers. The 19p would do it, but it lacked bottom end power and hole shot speed. After installing the 17p 4 blade, I noticed a big difference in low end power and much better hole shot. It pulled skiers up much easier. I did lose about 5 mph top speed ( I was at 40mph, now I'm at 35mph). The boat feels more stabil in the corners. Less vibrations at low speeds. The boat will keep a plain at lower speeds too. This prop was exactly what I needed.

The prop is just what I thought it was. Shipping was fast and if I need another prop, I will order one from here.

This is by far the best prop I have ever had on my boat. I have tried several different pitches on both 3 and 4 blade props. This prop gave me the hole shot and top end speed I was looking for on my 96 Rinker Captiva 4.3. I highly recommend.

I bought this prop to replace my 3 blade aluminum 14" x 17 pitch after I spun the hub hitting a floating stick. The included spacer and lock washer didn't fit my '64 Mercruiser, but the prop works great. Excellent bottom and top end performance and handling. Best buy on a new prop I could find! Highly recommended.

I did about two weeks of research and visited every boat shop in town. My Wellcraft 182S 4.3 V6 just did not have the hole shot performance I was looking for. It came with a 19" SS 3 blade prop. I order this prop, it shipped and delivered on time and I installed it in 5 minutes. It completely changed how my boat performs. Hole shot is unbelievable. Lost about 5 mph on top end but what I gained for wakeboarding, tubing and skiing FAR out weighs any negative of top end. Be warned, you will gain RPMs and I could have easily exceeded them. Be smart, drive safe and aware and you will absolutely love this prop! Well worth the money and would highly recommend it.

I was running a 14.5 x 18 pitch prop (not sure of the make) that was damaged last year. I wanted a bit more hole shot so I decided to buy this prop knowing I would give up a bit more top end speed. This prop on my 22' bowrider is totally awesome. Not only did it give me better hole shot, it also gave me an increase of 2km/hr top speed. The prop blades are designed different then my old prop and sit back a bit further on the stern drive, thus you need to buy an offset anode. I didn't buy a new one but instead I used my grinder and made the anode a bit smaller allowing the blades to turn freely. I also noticed I could make much better, tighter turns at full speed without any cavitation. All in all an excellent prop for my boat. Dave Trenton, Ontario Canada

I run a 18.5' tri-hull with a merc 2.5 120 and an alpha 1. The prop I had previous to my Solas was a 21 pitch 3 blade... What a huge difference in handling and planing performance with the New Solas 4 blade! The cornering characteristics of the boat are amazing! The very first time I throttled it up I had 4 adults and two teenagers on the boat... it was a great hole shot and the speed at which we planed was fantastic. I did lose about 5-7 mph top end, but my motor loves the RPM that this prop lets it operate at and I get about 3MPG better. Pulling tubes and cutting s-turns with a fully loaded boat it no problem now. The only issue I had with the prop is that on my Alpha One I had to change the anode to a smaller offset one. I use this boat in fresh water and out in the monterey bay, the prop is flawless! Highly recommended!

Bought the prop on sale for $99. Came with the spacer and 2 tab washers. Prop is really nicely made. Very even and consistent construction. Prop gets my Bayliner 175xt on plane instantly. Can pull a wakeboarder with 6 people in the boat and the boarder still pops out of the water instantly. Very smooth at mid and high rpms. Awesome prop for an awesome price.

I needed more torque for skiing and tubing. This prop made a big difference. I had a 3-blade 19° pitch and went to a 4-blade 17°. This kept me in my WOT range. The first i pulled my son using this prop i pulled the ski rope out of his hands. only lost a couple of MPH's with the prop change.

This is a very nice prop for the money. Its a great alternative to the SS 4 blade and ALOT cheaper. I went from a 13.75" X 21 3 blade to this prop and its a different boat. GREAT holeshot and great for pulling tubers. My boat is a 20' VIP Valiant with a Mercruiser 5.7L Alpha one 260HP.

I have owned and used several solas props. have two Solas Amita props that I use on 150 hp evinrude V6. 17 and 19 pitch by 15.5 diameter. Both props work well and fit great depending on the boat load and what I am doing I will use one or the other. Shipping was very fast. I have bought several items from iboats and have always been satisfied.

I learned the hard way about buying a prop online from iBOATS....their policy once the prop touches the water no return, no allowance, no swap is available. The prop did not perform even close to expectation, but I had no way of knowing that with out trying it. Let the buyer beware.

This prop replaced the stock Mercruiser 3 blade 21 pitch on my 2002 18 ft Caravelle stern drive open bow ski boat. This is like an unbelievable miracle prop- the boat jumps up on plane twice as fast and I gained 3-5 mph, it turns sharper and tracks straighter. I can't believe it, either. How can a simple prop switch make that much difference? I don't know, but it did. I will not go back to stock Mercruiser props, that's for sure. Iboats delivered in a couple days, at a decent price. I had to call iboats to be sure I didn't need anything extra, but they answered right away and told me I didn't. It was nice not to have to spend another $40 on a hub kit. Anyhow, I am a satisfied customer.

Replacement prop for my 16 year old Suzuki 70 4 stroke - easy install perfect fit, I chose the Solas over other options because it didn't require the expense or hassle of a separate hub kit so I can easily swap out with my back up prop.
