In that case, I'd be inclined to give it a run with that prop and see how you get on. Better to go looking for a new prop after you find the one supplied is not suited, rather than get a new one in advance of finding the original to be ok.

I bought 2 Andy cause I do find that props make excellent depth sounders. And lets face it they are 156 eac in the uk whereas the place I have bought them for in the US charges $109 ea. plus $80 to ship. They will put a low value on the shipping notes so I don't pay tax which means I am getting the props for about 80 ea.
