3-Blade vs. 4-Blade Aluminum Propellers.    
3-Blades
3-blade Aluminum props are great on most boats as they offer good all around performance, better efficiency, and can achieve higher speeds. Switching from 4 to 3-blades generally requires a 1" pitch increase.
3-Blade vs. 4-Blade
4-Blades
4-blade Aluminum props work well with bass, pontoon & high performance boats as they provide better acceleration, keep a boat on plane with fewer RPM's, and produce less vibration at high speeds. Switching from 3 to 4-blades generally requires a 1" pitch decrease.

Aluminum vs. Stainless Steel Aluminum Propellers.    
Aluminum
Aluminum Aluminum props are a great choice for small and medium sized boats. They are inexpensive and under normal conditions can last for many years. When running your boat in an area where striking the bottom is likely, aluminum blades can flex, helping prevent damage to your engine.
Aluminum vs. Stainless Steel
Stainless Steel
Stainless steel Aluminum props are ideal for large or heavy boats and boats running in saltwater. Although more expensive than aluminum, stainless steel Aluminum props are more durable and will last longer. When running your boat at speeds over 50 mph, stainless Aluminum props will perform better than aluminum.

Differences in Propeller Diameter.    
Diameter is the width of the circle that the Aluminum prop would make when rotating.

Prop diameter does not affect the fit of the prop on a boat.

The diameter of your Aluminum prop can vary by up to 1/2" with no discernable change in performance.

Caution: Before increasing the diameter of your Aluminum prop, make sure there will be enough clearance between the blades and cavitation plate or anode on your engine.

Choices for Aluminum Propellers

Two very common metals used for casting boat propellers are stainless steel and aluminum, with aluminum being the most commonly used metal for this purpose. Boating enthusiasts are divided in their opinion of the two, with some strongly preferring aluminum props over any other kind. One major advantage of aluminum propellers is their affordability; boaters can often buy them for a fraction of what a stainless steel propeller in the same size range would cost. Aluminum propellers are also highly portable, in part because the nature of aluminum makes them lightweight. In addition, these propellers deliver high performance and are appropriate for a wide range of boating activities.

One caveat about aluminum props, however, is that they must be kept painted in order to keep corrosion at bay.

Michigan Wheel Aluminum Propellers

The Michigan Wheel company, a historically well-respected name in propeller manufacture, offers many different models of aluminum prop. They produce two major lines of such propellers: the Vortex and Michigan Match series.

Vortex propellers from Michigan Wheel feature XHS hub technology and incorporate features such as geometric blades that deliver high performance in part because they are precisely balanced for maximum efficiency in the water. They also look attractive, boasting a powder coat finish that will help to prevent corrosion from forming on the blades or hub. All Vortex props come with a limited lifetime warranty.

Michigan Match propellers feature a hub already pressed in, which means there is no need to purchase an additional hub kit. Michigan Match propellers are manufactured from high-level aluminum alloys that help the prop stay in excellent condition for many years.

Vortex Propellers Offer Functional Beauty

Michigan Wheel Vortex props are high performance propellers fashioned from aluminum, a metal that is strong yet lightweight. Both of these features lead to engine efficiencies and can contribute to lower fuel consumption.  All Vortex propellers utilize the revolutionary interchangeable hub system known as the XHS Xchangeable.

In addition, Vortex propellers possess a high degree of precision in the blade design, incorporating both high performance geometry and a careful balance among the blades for optimum performance.  Covered with a powder coating that imparts a high gloss finish, Michigan Wheel Vortex propellers are beautiful as well as functional.  They also come in a large range of styles and designs engineered to suit various applications.  For example, Vortex propellers can be purchased in both three and four blade varieties.  They work with V6 and V8 engines, and they can be used with engines that vary in horsepower from 20 HP all the way up to an impressive 70 HP.

These features make them ideal replacement propellers, but many boaters do not wait until their current prop develops a problem to buy a Vortex replacement.  Instead, they carry a Vortex prop on board as a spare so that they are prepared in advance to deal with emergencies.  Few motorists would consider an outing in the absence of a spare tire – it only stands to reason that boating enthusiasts would be well advised to have a spare propeller on hand.

Michigan Match Propellers: Quality at a Great Price

One of the great advantages of Michigan Match propellers is their price point.  Michigan Match props are of a high quality and perform better than many propellers that come with motors to begin with, but they typically can be purchased for a lower price than comparable propellers from other major manufacturers.  This is done without sacrificing the quality that customers have come to expect, which means that there is no reason for boating enthusiasts not to choose Michigan Match propellers when they need an aftermarket solution that will deliver solid propulsion and acceleration.

High Quality Spindle

One of the best features of propellers from Michigan Match is the spindle.  These are fashioned from NAVAL brass and feature a hub cushioned with rubber in order to absorb the stress and impact that comes with any mechanical system.  Boaters who have Michigan Match props can shift gears without worrying that this very action is wearing down their spindle to an inordinate degree.

In addition, Michigan Match propellers have a rubber bushing that will spin free when subjected to any significant impact.  This feature helps the system to avoid greater levels of damage that would be more expensive and time-consuming to repair.

In appearance, propellers manufactured by Michigan Match are powder black with a high gloss that makes them aesthetically appealing and helps to cut down on the drag that can result in a loss of speed.  The coating also serves to protect the aluminum core of the propeller.
