    I have the stock prop that came with my 9.9 Yamaha on a Shadowcast.
    I ran aground a few times getting too close to the flats last time, and noticed that my prop was getting damaged. I just bought a manual jackplate to take advantage of the pocket tunnel, and now I'm interested in upgraded the prop. Any recommendations?

    Stainless 3 blade power tech. Same pitch or one up from factory.

    Why would you go up 1 from the factory pitch?

    For a smaller motor, the rpm range with a stock pitch is about at its peak +/- 1. If hes loaded and his 9.9 is working its tail off, then go up one pitch. Your not going to see any adverse effects doing this with a 9.9.... If you run with a light load, then stick with stock... I wouldnt go down a pitch unless I had a tiny tach hooked up....
