New prop

 I'm up for a new prop after today's outing.

 

I currently have a Suzuki 16" 3 blade with 20 inch pitch.

 

The default business that comes to mind is Just Propellers, but just wanted to hear of other businesses that forum members have had a good experience with.

 

Also, now would be an opportunity to look at alternative prop configs (eg 4 blade in lieu of 3).  Is there typically a direct conversion going from one to the other, or am i up for trial and error on water?

 

Cheers.

 

Tom.

A good friend of mine has got a Zook 115. He's had a multitude of different props for it including a four blade yet he swears that the factory one was always the best. Hope this helps you out.

 Just propellors does know his stuff, but be prepared for some of the worst customer service  you have ever seen from him.

 

I wont go there again.

 He certainly has a low tolerance for bullshit or even suspected bullshit. 

If you really don't want to deal with him the other one I would recommend is Peter Bobcat. Props by bobcat. Easy enough to find on fb. East coast though.
