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.

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

--EXPRESS
--HUSTLER
--or TURNING POINT?

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.
