Are you pumping it to the right pressures? Too soft and it won't have the rigidity. I pumped my main tubes to 0.4 bar and hyjackers to 0.8 bar. That's what a racer told me they all did.

Yep that's what you're after. That's a Ron Hill prop, cheaper than a genuine mercury or yamaha prop. They're a bit of a gamble as I've said. I'd go for it, try it out, if it vibrates a lot or doesn't perform like you want it to send it to a prop tuning company.
I'd get it scanned, see what the true pitch is and have it balanced so all the blades are equal. If it's slipping you can add some cup.
Once they're tuned they are very good props. Saying that you might get lucky and get one that's good straight from the box. Either way I would get it tuned, they still represent good value for money.

They are genuine cleaver props. Just that they're made by Ron Hill instead of mercury. I think he's Prop19 on eBay? Both the ones you've posted are the same
There's a forum called boatracingfacts.com where there's usually props for sale.
