    I recently picked up a 4 blade prop for a '61 johnson......can someone give any pros & cons on a 3 vs 4 blades.....thanks
     
  2. I've noticed with mine 3 blade boat runs faster and planes faster
    4 blade the boat will stay at plane at slower speeds and handles rough water better, it seems to have a little more torque at the mid range
