I ultimately ended up on a 4 blade too with the 275.. same pitch as the 3 but it was better when cornering and gripped more accurately on a turn when some wave was on, strangely, I always found the hole shot dissapointing with either .. dont know why, but to me that was not a significant part of my boating anyway and I never tried to improve that, I was content with the mid range thrust, which was excellent when threading bigger seas and ofcourse the top end
