Has any had experience with "Express High Performance Stainless Steel Propellers" or Hustler "High Performance Propellers".
I am looking to replace my Yamaha 115hp propeller (13 1/4 x 19") (on my 18' Outrage) and I was leaning towards a Stiletto Stainless Steel but was intrigued by the price of these TurningPoint propellers.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts or comments.

hustlers are aluminum and my moto is you get what you pay for.

I am confused about the brand name of the propellers you are asking about. Is it:

I believe the propellers are manufactuered by a company called Turning Point and go by the brand names of Express (for aluminum) and Hustler (for Stainless Steel).
These both have an inter-changeable hub design which cuts down on the cost if you replace the propeller housing or want two different pitches for example. I have no experience with this type of design and wondered if it was a smart setup.
Thanks in advance.

I don't think anyone makes a better prop than Mercury and they have hubs to fit most motors. They are spendy to be shure, but you generaly get what you pay for.

Overtons I believe have Hustler props($59) that are silver painted aluminum.

I generally agree with Dick's comments on Mercury's props, which fit any brand engine.
But, if pricing is a reality, I don't think you can go wrong with three bladed SS props like Stiletto, Cabela's own brand (made by Stiletto), or Michigan Wheel Rapture. I would stay away from a really cheap prop like the Turning Point, either in SS or aluminum.
