About Michigan Wheel Boat Propellers

Ballistic XHS Stainless Steel Boat Propellers

  • Optimized power tip for peak efficiency
  • High luster mirror finish
  • Shock-absorbing hub
  • Highly cambered blade sections
  • Tapered leading edge
  • Exchangeable Hub System
  • Simple installation, repair and replacement

The key feature of the Ballistic XHS propeller is its highly efficient power tip and tapered leading edge. This design gives Ballistic XHS the thin leading edge blade performance of racing style propellers while maintaining strength and thickness over the rest of the blade. The power tip and blade cup combine to deliver improved bite and reduce power loss caused by cavitation.

XHS Exchangeable Hub System absorbs impact and stress caused by shifting gears. The urethane-cushioned hub is designed to spin under significant impact, reducing the potential for costly lower unit damage.

This prop added about 8 miles per hour to my boat... it's definitely a fast little prop... I love it very nice difference in my original raker prop...

My rig is a key West 216 bay/reef with a Yamaha 250 sho. Was running a sal er series 2 prop 15 1/4 x 18. At 5900 rpm she topped out at 54 mph gps and cruised 37 mph at 4200 rpm. Tried the ballistic 14 1/2 x 19 and was impressed with the results. Now she runs 61 mph at 5900 and cruises 41 mph at 4200 rpm. Same hole shot or slightly better

I have a 1990 rinker captiva with a 4.3 V6. This prop works great on my boat. Improved the overall performance and had a very noticeable improvement on the hole shot.

Product shipped within 1 day, customer service was very helpful. I originally ordered the wrong prop - the process to return was easy. I am happy with the Michigan Wheel prop, quality is good and price is right. Very good value.

I've been putting off purchasing a SS prop, now I wish I'd have done it sooner. Big difference in the way my boat handles and sounds. Much quicker out of the hole, without even trying. Top end speed 5+ mph faster. Easier to pull the kids on the tube.

I ordered this prop and was impressed by the craftsmanship and polish. The prop looks just as cool in person as it did in the iboats product pics. Unfortunately the prop would not fit properly due to a rare setup from Evinrude. I have an ETec 115 HO with 20 inch shaft and smaller gear case. Unfortunately this limits my prop selection.

Great performance with my 2001 19' Maxum SR ski boat.

Propeller looks great, but the inside hub of the propeller itself had an imperfection and would not allow hub insert to go in all of the way. Sent off return and am still waiting to see if I just wasted my money or not.

Purchased a Michigan Wheel Prop from your company. Took it out on my boat, it did not perform as expected and I contacted your company and explained my concerns, I was told "once you put the prop in the water it is considered used and could not be returned or refunded". Now, how would anyone be able to know how well a prop works without trying it on their boat????? I contacted Michigan Wheel and their lack of follow up is frustrating and extremely unprofessional. Now I'm out $ 300.00??? What a crock! I'm very disappointed in your service and your policy!

Good day, I have a 22 ft. Ebbtide 224 Catalina with a 5.7 260hp mercruiser. This prop looks great and what they say about the prop may interfere with the trim tabs is true. I thought they meant when you install it you may run into problems with the trim tabs. What I did not know was they meant if you use the trim tabs when you're trimming the boat, you could lose control of the steering if you're running full throttle or WOT. I was very disappointed when I briefly lost control of the boat and had to back off the throttle and explain what happened to my wife and kids and friend. I guess I learned a hard lesson that day. If you have to replace a prop get the same one your boat came with. Just make it stainless steel. On the positive note the prop gave me a constant 1 mile per hour more on top end. I'm gonna test this prop to find the best characteristics for my boat. (I have too it's the only one I have) I'll write a follow up review if it gets better.

Ordered the 21pitch propeller based on a pitch estimate given to me on my current prop. Received the propeller quickly, and when I opened the box, it was obvious that the pitch was too high for my motor. I returned the 21 pitch and purchased the correct pitch (17). I am very happy with the 17 pitch prop. The return process for the 21pitch prop was simple. iboats is a great company.

This is the second Ballistic prop I have owned. It delivers great overall performance and the added safety of a replaceable hub. I received helpful advice from iboat customer service. Note: order an extra hub kit just in case. Safe boating.

Have tried several stainless steel props on my Carolina Skiff with a 70 Yamaha 4-stroke. The Ballistic XHS performed better than the factory test performance spec sheet for my set-up. This is an awesome prop! The extra cup and flattened tips made a huge boost in performance.
