3-Blade vs. 4-Blade Propellers.    
3-Blades
3-blade 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 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 Propellers.    
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 props are ideal for large or heavy boats and boats running in saltwater. Although more expensive than aluminum, stainless steel props are more durable and will last longer. When running your boat at speeds over 50 mph, stainless props will perform better than aluminum.

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

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

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

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

I picked up the Michigan Wheel Apollo 993042, and my boat has never run better. Installation was extremely easy, I picked up an extra Hub kit "just in case". Deep Blue had the best price that I could fine, by a good margin too.

Loving the Michigan XHS props. The XHS spinner saved me last weekend when hit a piece of debris. Great performance too. Picking up another spare XHS kit just to be safe

Michigan Wheel Apollo Props

Apollo props used with outboard motors come in three basic varieties and are known by their series designation of A, B, of C.  However, no matter the number of blades and other differing specifications, all Apollo propellers  in the XHS line share some basic features that are key to this entire line of high quality outboard propeller.

Apollo XHS propellers are manufactured from stainless steel and are highly polished in order to deliver excellent and long-lasting performance.  These propellers – available in a wide range of sizes that feature different diameter and pitch — can be used with most outboard motors, but interestingly enough, they are also suitable for use with sterndrive motors.  The blade geometry has been designed using advanced CAD (computer aided drafting) principles in order to deliver peak performance.

Michigan Wheel Apollo Props are available in three- and four-bladed varieties.  Boating enthusiasts should be aware that the four-blade design is recommended for water craft carrying heavy loads and is also an appropriate choice for all kinds of water sports, such as water-skiing, which requires a great deal of rapid acceleration.  For very heavy applications, a large diameter propeller is advised, since the greater surface area of the blades is an advantage in this situation.

The XHS hub system is particularly useful for some boaters because with this system, Apollo props can be readily interchanged with the Flo-Torq II system from Mercury.

Available Sizes

Apollo props vary from 12″ to 23″ of pitch depending on the motor installed.

Michigan Wheel Apollo stainless boat propellers

When you buy an Apollo Propeller from Michigan Wheel, you can be sure that you are buying a piece of top quality equipment for your boat. But why is it so important to have a top quality propeller? The function of the propeller is clear from its name. The propeller is designed to propel the boat backward, forward, or in whatever direction you need to go. A propeller not only needs to be powerful to move your boat, but it also has to be built with precision and expertise. The better designed your propeller, the better your boat will run and the more control you will have over your ride. Additionally, a top quality propeller is durable and will last longer than one that is cheaply made. As a boater, you may occasionally find yourself in a sticky situation. Your ability to get out of a bad situation can depend largely on the quality and durability of your propeller.

The Apollo XHS Propeller

Michigan Wheel sells some of the most popular high-quality boat propellers on the market, such as the line of Apollo XHS propellers. Even in the world of top notch boating equipment, these propellers are unique. They come in three different models that include customizable features such as the three or four blade design, made to improve hole shot when carrying heavy loads or being used for water sports. No matter what propeller you get, however, you will be sure to appreciate the highly polished stainless steel used to make every model. The polish on the steel is not only attractive, but it increases the propeller’s glide and ability to shed water when it is being used. This stainless steel is designed for top performance.

Every Apollo XHS has two things that make it unique. First is its ability to be used with both outboard and sterndrive applications. Propellers from Michigan Wheel come in an array of sizes that include 30-7 0 HP and V6/V8 OBSC. The smaller diameter propellers are more than powerful enough for smaller boats, or even mid sized boats carrying light loads. The larger diameter propellers, on the other hand, are perfect for large boats carrying heavy loads and boats that are tugging or being used in water sports. Second, these Apollo XHS propellers are included in Michigan Wheel’s line of Xchangeable Hub System propellers, which means that they are interchangeable with the Mercury Flo-Torq II system propellers. They are truly some of the most versatile propellers on the market.

Michigan Wheel’s Apollo Stainless Boat Propeller

A three- or four-blade Apollo boat propeller can be one of the best choices for a replacement or spare prop on a private boat.  A recreational boat that sees infrequent use typically uses a three-blade propeller like the B or D series of the Apollo technology.  These are best for top-speed runs and ‘hole shot’ that gives acceleration.  A larger boat or a boat that has heavier cargo, such as bass boats or high performance hulls, a four-blade prop tends to be a better option, as they have less steering torque and vibration that causes problems navigating at higher speed.

While most boats tend to come out of the factory equipped with aluminum, due to the lower cost, Apollo propeller designs are all manufactured with stainless steel.  While this is more costly, it also has a longer shelf life and gives stronger performance than an aluminum prop.  Both can last many years with minimal maintenance, but over the long term a stainless steel propeller will outperform an aluminum choice.  All Apollo XHS models are stainless steel that can be taken through any condition on the open ocean.  A propeller made from Die-Cast usually cannot be repaired at all, given that it is too brittle — a steel replacement is far superior.  There are no advantages to plastic propellers, and a steel unit greatly outperforms these models.

All Apollo boat propeller models have rubber cushions.  This does not prevent damage to the blade, but rather protects internal parts by reducing the force of propellers impacts.  This keeps the drive pins from breaking or shearing off during the shock exerted from shifting gears.  The XHS Hub system on all Apollo units make them interchangeable with Mercury Flo-Torq systems, so that they can be put in and out as an owner desires to adjust performance or do repairs.  They function for the majority of sterndrive and outboard applications, with sizes ranging from thirty to seventy horsepower and V6 or V8 engines.  The large diameter propellers on the D series can service even larger engines.  Their quality build and blade array design make them a quality choice for any boat owner.
