Reviews for Solas HR Titan 4 Blade Stainless 14.25" dia. X 17" pitch SR
Propeller reviewed on Oct 19th, 2017
I purchased this prop to replace the factory prop on a 250 HP Yamaha which was a 3 blade 17 pitch. In reading about replacing a 3 blade with a 4 blade prop, it was recommended that I decrease the pitch by 1 and diameter was not a major factor. One objectives for me was to gain a few MPH top speed. I dropped from 50 MPH top speed to 47 top speed (GPS). Another goal I was trying to achieve was reduce the vibration caused by my 3 blade prop. This prop did that very well. I should have ordered a 4 blade with an 18" pitch and a 15"+ diameter. Loss of top speed is my only complaint but this should not have been the outcome.

This prop runs perfectly on my ShallowSport 24v with a Yamaha SHO 250. Great out of the hole, no cavitation at any angle and runs the boat 45 MPH. This is the second boat I have had on which a Solas Prop was the perfect fit (albeit a different prop). I have used them for years and highly recommend Solas. Just do some research before buying to ensure that you are buying the right size, pitch and rake for your boat. Solas can tell you what experience boaters have had with each of their props.

Everything was as stated. I ordered on Tuesday was at my door when I got home from work on Thursday. Took me 5 minutes to change out the prop with my old one. We had a boat full and still pulled up a skier knee boarder at the same time. Would have never been able to do that with the old one. thanks,

I had the factory 14 1/4x 17 3 blade prop on my 150hp Yamaha but it ate too many rocks. After much research, this one caught my eye. I installed this 4 blade 14.25x17 on the boat and wow what an improvement. Lost maybe 2-3 mph at WOT so now it does 40mph instead of 43(who cares). The whole shot, getting on plane, and turning is leagues better. If you have a Hurricane deck boat, this is definitely the prop for you.

To be honest. buying propeller can be expensive. Having 2 props already, I ask around for some advise. I then decided to go to my local prop shop (they repair and supply) and speak with him about my concern , well. This is how it went.I have a 24ft center console with a 225 Yamaha 2 stroke. The prop on the motor really wasn't getting me anywhere. It also caused a large wake or mound of water behind my boat.(19"). so my prop guy lent me a Yamaha Salt water series II. (21''). Well, that gave me a slow hole shot but top end was awesome. the problem was the wake, not getting out of the hole, and with passengers, almost impossible. I had another talk with my prop guy and he suggested a 4 blade prop. (18''). So, I took the plunge and I my third prop, this was the end result. Quick hole shot, quicker to get up to speed, 100% improvement there but, I lost 4 to 5 MPH. To tell you the truth, it was worth it. I am very happy with this proformance of this prop. I like it for sure! a prop for one, is not alsways a prop for all. It takes time, patience, and experimentation. Was worth it for sure. Love it!

Prop was delivered quickly and actually ahead of schedule. Put it on with new hardware set I bought which were all different than the Renegade prop I took off, which concerned me. The fit was very tight and I had to turn the nut down to as far as it would go to allow movement of the prop to get the cotter pin in it. Was a bit concerned about the tight fit but it works fine and I am very happy with the performance of the prop.
Propeller reviewed on Oct 25th, 2017
I got this prop due to the underwhelming performance of the original aluminum prop. With the Solas' increased rake and cupping, the boat went from 47 to 52 mph. The RPM just a tad high, but the boat was very lightly loaded. So with more people and fuel, the RPM should be right where I want it to be. I expect this prop will be my all around use prop next summer.
Propeller reviewed on Sep 18th, 2017
Great boat lift and stability. Hole shot is great. Big difference from the 3 blade prop. This 4 blade prop is great! The price is very good for Titan 4 prop. Well worth it.

I typically load my 22' C Dory down quite a bit so my boat was under propped with the original 3-blade 13.5" X 15" pitch prop. This prop is perfect for my set up. Couldn't be more pleased with boat performance!
Propeller reviewed on Aug 20th, 2017
I recently purchased a Solas HR Titan 3 blade 14.75 x 16 prop for my shallow water boat. My boat is powered by a 2017 150HO Etech. I looked at all information on prop prior to purchasing and found no information showing that it was not suitable for cupping or shallow water performance. We fish lower laguna madre mostly in 14 to 16 inches of water, usually soft mud or sand bottom. As with every new prop we or anyone fishing this area purchases, it is taken to a professional to add cupping for shallow water. Prop was installed on motor after cupping and used the next few days. Great performance the first couple of days days but noticed on the 3rd day it was loosing its bite on water struggling to get hole shot and I could not run motor with jack plate up. Pulled boat out of water to find a 1/4 of one of the blades had snapped off. It did not hit or come into contact with anything. Sure there may be obstructions in water but it pretty apparent when you come into contact with something in shallow water. There are no oyster beds in the area nor really anything to come into contact with in the areas we were. Other 2 blades were perfectly fine, no dings or damage anywhere on remaining blades. I took prop back to prop shop to learn the stainless steel is poor quality compared to all others he had in shop. It was brittle once heat was applied where others were not. Prop could not be repaired being the steel would not hold the weld. This prop specialist is used by about every fisherman on the coast and I've used him for over 20 years. Seen him repair, rebuild and cup damaged props more than you can imagine. This is the first "break" I've had and because of quality it was not repairable. I contacted Solas to have them tell me that they were not sure what happened but they could not warranty it and maybe I should buy a different model of Solas prop to see if I have better luck. After seeing Solas Titan model put up against other brands in the custom shop I do believe it is of low quality steel and can not handle the heat that's required to cup a prop for shallow water performance. I believe it is a responsibility of Solas to include this in their information regarding their product being that every shallow water/tunnel boat whether it be Shallow Sport, Kenner, Bluewave, Shoalwater or Predator requires cupped props for performance. I purchased another brand prop and had it cupped with no issues whatsoever. I would not recommend this product to anyone fishing coastal waters that require cupping on props.

Update to my last review on this product. After taking with the Solas rep, and with iBoats customer service, they agreed to allow me to exchange the previous prop suspecting it may have come bent/out of balance. I installed the new prop and it still makes the knocking noise. I've searched all over the web and have spoken with a couple boat mechanics and the best explanation that I got was that it is called "ratcheting" and is caused by the weight of the stainless causing the clutches to knock/chatter. Basically, it's just too heavy and the heavier prop spins faster knocking against the inner workings of the lower unit. It is LOUD obnoxiously loud to the point where you can barely hear a person talking at the front of the boat when at the helm. My boat sounds like a jalopy coming down the waterway at low speed. (Noise goes away at higher RPM's. Today, I ordered the aluminum Solas 3413-138-15 prop and will just deal with replacing it every few years if it gets chewed up. I'll try to sell this one on Craigslist to salvage some of my investment.

I bought this nice solas 23 pitch prop hoping it would be enough and it wasn't. It will make a nice spare or I can resell it! This prop fit perfectly and performed properly. No complaints. Iy came well packed with fast shipping! I repowered my boat with a suzuki 115 4stroke. For the last 20 years I ran a 115 evinrude with a 23 four blade prop. Nobody makes a 4 blade for the suzuki yet in the pitch I need. I need a 24 pitch 4 blade to tame this new motor. I have a 25 pitch 3 blade solas on the way and I fear it may not be enough to tame this powerful new 4 stroke.

I have a 2013 Suzuki 70hp 4 stroke - iBoats recommended this propeller as a replacement for the factory. I installed it immediately and put the boat in the water but while trying to back it off the trailer I heard a horrible knocking noise. I went away while in neutral but forward/reverse caused the loud knocking. I double checked the nut/install and it was tight/fine. I replace it with the old prop and put the boat in the water - no noise. I've found an article by another customer but I can't post the URL here so just google "New stainless prop causing "knocking" and it will be the first result. I checked the return policy on the website and found that if installed/used it isn't able to be returned. "Once the propeller touches the water it is considered used and is non-returnable. Returned propellers are subject to a 15% restock fee." I'll be calling them on Monday to try to resolve the issue I really want to make the prop work and I don't want to take a bath on the purchase.

Greatly improved performance
Propeller reviewed on Sep 9th, 2016
Replaced OEM prop from Volvo Penta with this. It does have a improved performance at the hole shot and at high speeds. The boat seams to run smother which tells me less cavitation. The only thing that keeps me from giving it 5 stars is at crusing speeds I need to run 300 + more RPM to get same speed. So the at mid speeds I seem to have lost some there. Need more time on to really tell.

Provides great performance
Propeller reviewed on Aug 30th, 2016
Purchased a used 150 hp 18' Basscat that was having difficulty coming on plane. It was equipped with a 14" dia X 23" Pitch prop. Tried a couple of lower pitch alum props and selected the Solas Titan 4 Blade SS 14" x 20" pitch. Quality and fit appear excellent, hole shot has improved dramatically, top speed dropped a little which was a fair trade. In retrospect I would select a 19" pitch which has nothing to do with the quality of this prop. Good Purchase, would recommend Solas and Iboats.

Nice upgrade to my factory aluminum propellor. Felt the difference immediately.
Propeller reviewed on Jul 24th, 2016
I have 250hp 4 stroke on a 22LTS triton. This prop gets out of the hole good. It also carries the same speed in the midrange as my 3 blade 21 pitch. I only lost about 3 mph on the top end.
Propeller reviewed on Jul 24th, 2016
I fish on a sound where the water is very shallow. Unexpected shoals pop up quickly, resulting in a frequently grounded prop. My aluminum prop was badly worn and nicked after two trips out. After two trips with my new stainless prop, it looks as good as new.
Propeller reviewed on Jul 16th, 2016
Couldn't be happier, should have done this years ago. I was doing some regular service, changing the impeller and since my old aluminum prop was a bit nicked up figured I might as well get a new prop. Did quite a bit of research trying to figure out the best choice of pitch for my boat and typical usage - 18' Bayliner w 3.0 Merc. Original prop was a 21" pitch. Top speed went up about 6-7mph, it pulls out of the hole much smoother and at least as strong as the old prop. I was really surprised at the improvement, used a gps speedometer as well as my son on his jetski to pace me. Very satisfied
