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.

Michigan Wheel Marine produces various lines of outboard propellers, each with its own distinct characteristics and applications. The Ballistic Propeller, for instance, is designed for those who need explosive speeds and reliable performance in aggressive environments. It is made of premium quality materials that have been selected for their superior properties. Deep Blue Yacht Supply is the industry leader when it comes to supplying Michigan Wheel Ballistic stainless steel propellers, order your Ballistic propeller today.
Material Composition
Michigan Wheel chose to create this propeller with 15-5PH stainless steel using one-piece investment cast construction. This grade is known for being resistant to corrosion so it is perfect for marine applications. It is also strong enough to withstand high pressure which can be present when the boat is running at full speed. A number of heat treatments may be employed to strengthen the material prior to fabrication. This alloy is made up of chromium, nickel, and copper. There may also be trace amounts of silicon, sulfur, manganese, phosphorous, and carbon. Meanwhile, the hub it coated on the inside with a durable rubber for shock absorption.
Design
The Ballistic propeller has a Power Tip design that is known to enhance power efficiency. This tip curvature, along with the blade cup, improves the prop's bite in the water for reduced slippage. They also minimize the physical damage and power losses brought about by the effects of cavitation. The leading edge has been tapered to lower drag without sacrificing blade integrity. A lot of models have interchangeable hub systems but the design team has opted to use basic hub geometry in this case to simplify installation and repair.
Ballistic props have a pressed in hub, so you do not need the XHS Hub Kit with this propeller.

Awesome Propeller, Jun 23 2013 8:52PM
By: CaptainBob
The Michigan Wheel ballistic propeller is the best stainless propeller on the market. I've tried quite a few SS props, and will buy Ballistics from here on out. Thanks Bob
 
Very Satisfied, Jul 7 2013 3:27PM
By: Hap
Easy to find the right prop for my Volvo-Penta SX-A outdrive. The original was a 4.3X21 so I bought this 4-3/8 X 21, 3 blade ballistic prop and it fit perfectly, easily, and performs exactly as I had hoped. Ordering was easy, shipping options were many, and it arrived in the 3 day time frame described. I'd recommend this prop for anyone with a 4.3 liter Volvo Penta SX-A outdrive.

Design Features of Ballistic Propellers

Ballistic propellers produced by Michigan Wheel Propellers are designed for high performance in all categories.  Key features of Ballistic props include the use of stainless steel in all major lines: the 3-blade, the 3-blade XL, and the 4-blade XL.

Tapered Edges

All Michigan Wheel Ballistic props feature leading edges that are tapered.  This not only helps to cut down on drag, but also serves to help the blade design have the ideal amount of strength as opposed to thickness.  Overly thick blades, of course, can cause weight issues that make the motor less efficient. Blades that are too thin are also a disadvantage due to the problem of warping under stress.  Michigan Wheel has used advanced manufacturing techniques to create a blade geometry with optimal thickness across the entire volume occupied by the blade.

Luster Finish

Ballistic props by Michigan Wheel also feature a mirror finish that is polished to a high shine.  This adds aesthetic appeal to the propeller to be sure, but it also has a practical advantage. A quality finish lends itself to improved resistance to the corrosive forces of fresh water and, in particular, sea water.

Other Specifications

Ballistic propellers are available with pitch measurements that range from 13″to 27″.  In addition, all blades feature the “Power Tip” system, which improves efficiency by carefully aligning blade cup and tip contours so that an optimal design profile is achieved.  This feature serves to reduce the loss in power that can result from cavitation.
