Thinking of buying a 17in Comprop as a lightweight spare for my 90 Yamaha/Montauk.
Cabela's $79 plus shipping. Anyone have any experience with this combination or with Comprops in general. Yeah, I've read the magazine tests.

What did the magazine test say? I hear those four blades don't do a thing for top speed but it gives the boat a little more low and midrange power. True or not true that is the question.-EasyE

I ran a 4 blade comprop on a 115 evinrude.Great all around performance.I used them for 2 years as my main prop but after spinning the hub on two seperate props I would only recommend them as a spare.Both props blew while cruising at 4000 Rpms in open water.

Just got a new 17" on E-Bay, will let you know how it works. I have a bunch of data I will post with a 14x17 alum, 13x19 alum, 13 3/8x17 SS, and a 12.8x17" comprop 4 blade. All on a 17 Montauk with a 70hp Evinrude 4 stroke. Should be fun.

compounder -

I had a Montauk with 90 Evinrude and stainless prop. Used the comprop as a spare or get me home. I tried it once and it was a bit slower than the stainless, but it was an inexpensive spare so I didn't care. I never used it again, but always carried it. I didn't need two stainless props, I needed a cheap get me home that could stow easily.
