Susuki SS Prop

Was checking out some SS props for my Susuki DF90.
Came upon this dealer that seemed to have good prices on clearance Michigan wheel "Rapture" models. (about $185 ).
Any one use these.? Seem cheapest of the bunch and then the prices go up from there. So not sure what advantages the other more expensive models have. They all seem to boast of cupped trailing edges for better grab and high performance; so anyone have a recommendation from the list??

cheers Dal

Hi Darrall,

Try I bought a Michigan Wheel Rapture for my Tohatsu 50 for $150. The first one I got was a little wobbly on the hub so I returned it and got a straight one no problems. I got about 4 mph faster than my previous alu prop but I also went up a pitch. Hole shot is a little slower but top end is better and the motor runs a bit smoother too.

I'm pretty happy with my purchase. If I'd got the same pitch as the alu the performance increase would have been a bit percepable (sp?) I guess.
