Propeller reviewed on Jul 2nd, 2018
In all fairness this engine isn't strong enough for this boat. I am having trouble planing with 5 adults on board (USCG=capacity 10) thought I would try a 4 blade not enough improvement to switch. Tried boat with two and the engine over revved (6K +), I'm going back to a three blade.

Just got this prop to try out. I have a PolarKraft 1778 utility boat with an Evinrude Etec 40 on it. To start off I like a number of things about this prop from an engineering and manufacturing standpoint. The squeeze cast method produces a much thinner blade. Blade thickness is probably half that of other aluminium props using a more traditional die cast or investment cast method. The guardian hub is easy to install and change. Shifting is smooth and the prop runs completely vibration free and it does away with the nylon washer that gets chewed up with every prop change. As far as performance goes, in my application it performed every bit as good as the BRB Rouge 13.25x15 stainless 4 blade I have been running in the past. Possibly even a little bit better. Prop was tested with 2 people, 9 gallons of fuel, trolling motor and 2nd battery and various misc gear. Total boat weight as tested was 1500 lbs. Motor is on the 2nd hole putting the cavitation plate about 1/4 above the bottom of the boat. To start the BRP Rouge would turn 5300-5400 rpms and give a top speed of 28 mph holeshot is strong enough to pull a wakeboarder easily. 2 wakeboarders take a bit more effort and required the driver to cut a turn to get up on plane. The 13x15 Rubex 4 blade ran the same 28 mph but at a slightly higher 5600 rpms. Holeshot was just as good as the BRP Rouge. Possibly even stronger. During hard turns at full throttle the boat would bleed off some speed while not bogging down the engine. Handling is very predictable. The boat will stay on plane at 3700 rpms at 16 mph. Cruise is a nice and easy 4000 rpms at 20 mph. As expected I cant trim the engine quite as high without ventilation compared with the stainless. I haven't done any watersports with it but based on its performance so far I see no reason why it wont perform well. All in all you cant go wrong with this prop. It delivers stainless performance for a fraction of the cost. A+

I purchased the Solas Rubex 4 blade, 15 pitch prop to replace a 3 blade 17 pitch on my 1993 Cajun fish and ski. The difference out of the hole was great. Gets on plain quick and only lost 1 MPH on top end. Next prop will be the same, only in stainless steel.

I purchased this prop due to performance specs and to replace a damaged prop. I was a tad disappointed when I did not see the top end increase but was happy with gained control in docking and better push while cornering along with better planing at lower rpm's. Overall I would recommend this product to anyone buying a new or replacement prop as gains outweigh the loss.

This prop is great. It makes my 25 year old Johnson 140 pull like a mule. iboats gets it to you in perfect shape and in a timely fashion.Word of warning, use the new thrust washer that comes with the hub set or the spacer that holds the prop on will not fit in front of the lock nut.

I'd been running a 14X17 3blade on my 115 Evenrude that maxed at about 5300 rpm, which will get me close to 40 indicated mph. However, it would not pull people out of the water to ski or board and took forever to plane. The Solas 13X15 4 blade solved some of this, but only reaches about 34 indicated mph. I was expecting some decrease, but not 6 indicated. Otherwise, I'm completely satisfied as prop allows the 115 Evenrude to reach about 5700 rpm and does a far superior job for my skiers/boarders. Unfortunately, there just is no guarantee on which prop will do what with your boat. So, you don't know until you try it and sadly there is no way to find out without buying an item you can't return.

I have an 18' Duck Water Ocean series (one heavy aluminum boat, 0.25" hull thickness, try to beat that you Lund Alaskian owners!) and have a 115hp Evinrude Etec (one amazing engine, second to none!) and was running 13.25" dia. x 17" pitch 3 blade with a WOT at 5500 rpm with a top speed of 41mph. This factory blade matched up pretty well with the boat and gave a pretty good hole shot, but being I run a heavy loads (3 - 4 hunters with all there gear, 1- 2 dogs, and 10-12 dozen on burlaped dekes) in big waters (Lake Ontario, NYS Finger Lakes, St. Lawrance river, etc.) in questionable weather and times of the year (December and January) I wanted to give this 4 blade prop a try. It's one amazing prop, great hole shots under load, 39-40 mph (only giving up 1 or 2 mph), and put my WOT rpms' at 6000 (the upper end of the engines spec range 5500 - 6000). Give these 4 blade props a try, you won't be disapointed!

I have not had a chance to try this porp yet. I am hoping it will make the boat go faster. I bought a 4 cycle Mercury OB from some guy that had it on a pontoon boat. So the prop was a 14-8. The Iboat calculator said I needed a 13.5-15 3 blade or a 13x15 4 blade. I went for the 4 blade. I have installed it as per the manuals instructions. Fit perfectly. Just waiting for a good weekend to try the boat out.

After cutting (with an angle grinder) a terribly seized 19 pitch 3 blade prop off the shaft, the Rubex 4 blade went on without problem. Went from 19p on the 3 blade to 15p on the 4 blade. Rpm went from max 4500 to 5250 and top speed went from 46 k/hr to 51 k/hr (on gps). Picks up out of the water MUCH quicker, 17' Glastron. But having to cut the old one off, I now need to by another for a spare. I'm thinking 3 blade 17p but have quite decided. I am pleased with this product.

I have a 115 E-Tec that I have been running with a BRP Rogue 4 Blade Stainless prop 13 1/4 X15. Didn't carry a spare because I was only fishing local waters and have unlimited towing insurance. I got the Solas as a spare. The Rogue turns at 5500 with a light load, which is right at the bottom end of my recommended WOT RPM range. The Solas turns close to 6000 at WOT. I am planing an extended fishing trip with a buddy. Will be putting the Solas on for the heavily loaded trip. Install was easy. Everything needed was included in the package, and fit right.Fit and finish of the prop itself is excellant.Very happy with the Solas. The only negative I have seen so far is the Solas seems to have much weaker reverse thrust than the BRP prop I am used to. I realy like a 4 blade prop for the slow speed manuvering and docking control they have. During what little reverse operations I have done so far I have to run up the revs on the Solas and it still seems to be "spinning its' wheels" in reverse.

Prop works very good. The pontoon boat had a 3 blade, that was pretty beat up, and wow what a difference! Can really tell the difference when you punch the throttle. And it comes with the hub kit and thrust washers. A way better deal than anything I found out there. When I decide to buy a stainless, this will be where I go to order it.

Prop was sent and received in a very timely manner. Box was wrapped in black plastic to keep it concealed. Everything was provided as described except for the tools of course. Prop looked very new and fitted perfectly. Performance is very strong. Had a three prop before and with this four prop it seems I have more power and speed performance. Thank You, iBoats

My 3 blade prop was ventilating. The 4 blade cured that plus it steers better, trims better and is way smoother. Can't wait to try a 4 blade stainless!

Bought a used boat with a Merc 3.0 alpha one. Was looking for a little more out of the hole performance. I got the four blade 17 pitch and it was like night and day. I am having a great time with my boat now. I would recommend this prop any day. As a note, the prop that was on the boat when i got it was a 21 pitch. Way too big for my boat. With this new prop i run at 4700 rpm and top end is a nice 38 mph according to my gauges. Finding and ordering through iboats.com was a breeze. I have since ordered several other products from them.

I have a stern drive and got this to help with lower end control and faster planing. Helped with both. This combined with the Nautics trim tabs help me get on plane almost instantly and I have better control at lower speeds with no bow drift left and right. I lost a couple mph on the top end. Worth it.

My boat planes off faster , seems to run as fast top end, and certainly handles better at docking speed than it did with the 19 pitch three blade prop that was on it when I bought it.

I have a 21' bowrider with a 4.3 225 VP. It came with a 19p 3 blade which was fine for a light load on smooth water. This 17p 4 blade gives me the low end I need to pull a wakeboarder with a full boat. Also nice for quick throttle response while navigating rough water on the busy holiday weekends. Rubex hub s SMS to add a bit of cushion when shifting. Dropped my top end by about 5 mph but worth it when it need it. Easy enough to swap around depending on conditions.

This prop is awesome gets the boat on plain faster. I didn't lose any top end speed. Not that that matters. The boat curses at about 25 mph most of the time. No issues with the install very easy!!! Would buy again!

First time using a 4 blade prop. After reading many reviews I bought this prop and put it on a 1988 Sea Ray 21 ft. CC with a 4.3 liter power plant. Slight vibration at rev up, but the boat came up on plane quickly and steering was more responsive compared to the original factory spec 3 blade prop. The new hub adapter is also very interesting and appeared to be well made. Both the adapter and prop fit very nicely onto the out drive. Installation took about 20 minutes to swap out the old for the new.

With a larger boat and no trim tabs this prop was a definite benefit over a 3-blade. I get great out of the whole propulsion and little lift in the stern to help at WOT. the boat turns hard and has still caught some air in a hard turn, but nothing to complain about. Handles great.

Good: Very high quality product Hub kit is simple to install Great Value Bad Only that guidelines say for pitch change, 150 to 200 rpm per inch of pitch change, in addition to about 150 rpm drop when going from a 3 blade to a 4 blade This did not prove true for my situation. I have an 03 Rinker Captiva 192 (20 ft) with a Mercruiser 4.3L V6. I acquired the boat with a mercury 14.25 x 21 prop, with one person and full fuel I got 44mph at 4750 rpm (max suggested rpm is 5000). I am gearing down for towing skiers and boarders with people in the boat, Hole Shot is more important than top speed. I tried a Rubex 14.3 x 19 Four blade first, expecting to gain hole shot performance and increase full throttle RPM by 150 to 250 rpm. What I got was 43mph at 4650 rpm. Expected rpm to increase, but both speed and rpm dropped (boat loading almost the same, but I had just added a 200# wake tower, adding weight and a bit of wind drag). Expected RPM to increase, but it decreased and getting up on one ski with only 2 persons in the boat was difficult (lack of power on climb-out). Now I have this Rubex 14.5 x 17 Four blade, and what a difference! Hole-shot is dramatically quicker, nose comes down quickly, and getting up on one ski with 5 people in the boat is easy. Getting up on a wake board with 5 persons in the boat is instant! With only me in the boat and full fuel I get 41mph at 5200rpm (this speed is with GPS, the other speeds are with the old Petot tube speedometer, so I do not know how good this comparison is for speed) It is my hope to be able to ski and board with 7 people in the boat, and all indications are that this is the best prop for the job. I am extremely happy!

Purchased this prop for my Rinker 192 BR, mercuriser 4.3 6 cyl. Boat came with a 3 blade 14.25 x 21, producing 4750 rpm at about 44mph. I added a wake tower at same time as prop change, and tower is near 200#. Expected going to this 19 pitch, 4 blade would increase rpm by 150 to 200 (150 to 200 x2 for 2 inch pitch change, but one pitch change typically eaten up by adding 4th blade). What I have is now wot at 4650 rpm at about 43mph. Never expected rpm to go down. All listed numbers are driver only with full tank of gas, trimmed up. Plan is to get best hole shot for pulling ski/wake rider with 4people in boat. This prop change may have improved holes hot, but not dramatically, and boat barely gets me up on a slalom ski with 2 people in boat. I just ordered the same prop in a 17 pitch, confident that it would only over rev with one person and less fuel in tank. Hoping it will improve towing enough to satisfy my needs mentioned above. Will be crazy if I need to go to a 15 pitch! Nice quality prop, and hub assembled easily, will re use hub on new prop.

I have two other Solas Amita props, one an Amita3, the other an Amita4. I loved them both so when I needed a back up prop for a new boat I ordered my fourth. Sad to say that this one vibrates like a cheap Chinese sex toy. It sends a discernible shimmy throughout my whole boat. I ordered this as a backup propeller for a fishing trip to Canada thinking the Rubex is the way to go with all the rocks where we fish. However, I went back to using my very expensive stainless prop because I didn't want loose fillings after days on end of wot trips to our favorite fishing spots. I gave it two stars because of my love for the Rubex system and previous good luck with Solas.

I ordered a Solas Amitabh 21" 4 blade for my old Mercruiser setup that I have been restoring for a few years. It was my hope to get it on the water for Father's Day. All I had left was to put a prop on it, so I ordered one 2 weeks in advance. Well, things happen and something got lost in the shuffle. After a week I hadn't gotten any shipping confirmation so I called. Long story short, iBoats went above and beyond and made certain I had a propeller for Father's Day. Even overnight airing this Rubex propeller to me. Now to the propeller. What a dream! My 233 Mercruiser glides effortlessly along at 40+ mph and I've never had a smoother prop. I plan on getting a 19" to change out for pulling the family and a tube or skier. The stern lift is incredible. Mid range cruising is nearly effortless. So thankful for the iBoats crew and the great products they offer.
