Vengeance prop on bigfoot 60?

Hello all. I'm a newer whaler fan. I purchased a new 150 sport with the 60 4 stroke bigfoot about a year ago. Love the boat! Also like dropping in on Whaler forum from time to time to see whats going on. This is my first post.
I received a prop comparison from Whaler to see whether I should consider the new SS Vengeance option for my bigfoot. The performance seems almost identical with maybe a little top end LOSS with the Vengeance. Has anyone had any experience comparing these props? Has anyone heard anything on the subject?

by any chance is the prop grey on your 60 bigfoot....notice that all other aluminum props on mercury motors are painted black? there is a reason..do you know why?

I recall it had something to do with a special hub that the 4 stroke needed to shift smoothly. At the time, 03, this was the only prop available. I just recently saw the SS prop showing up on the new models. I don't know if a hub modification would be needed on my 60 (flo-torque) for the SS or not.

See my response in this thread concerning the hub, and for links to a comparison of the 14" Vengeance to the 15" Black Max on the 115HP four-stroke on the Nantucket:
I'm not impressed with the performance of the Vengeance at the just-above-planing cruise speeds. Seems like quite a bit of slip. The top speed on the Nantucket was about the same for both props.
