Volvo Penta Composite Props

I have been using Volvo“s composite props on my D3-160 with DPS sterndrive and have been having serious problems with blades breaking. Originally, I assumed I was hitting ropes etc underwater but this is now happening too frequently!! The fact that Volvo Penta have now discontinued the props and replacement blades may have something to say about the problem!!! Have any other owners experienced similar problems?
