I must admit looking at it against the other 3 bladed prop I have there seems to be more area on the blades for better performance I have just tried to change the props over and come across a problem the threaded ends on the shafts are different lengths  >:(

Propshop do a whole range of types and sizes and 'hands'.
From the reports on here, make sure they've actually received the order and get an ETA....

Also worth a look are the new Raboesch props sold by Deans Marine: http://www.deansmarine.co.uk/html/propellers.html

Here a good video I found on You tube about selecting and choosing the right propeller for you boat. Yes it is for full size boats
but the prciple is just the same for our model boats: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-jDJ9oKPrP8
