After doing some research I finally just ordered the Solas 9.25 x 10 stainless 3 blade for the highsider. The factory was a 9 pitch and hopefully after listening to several reviews I made a wise decision. We'll find out in a week or two and I will post some results. Worst case scenario, I have a nice looking spare prop in the boat.. :)

Is the Solas you ordered cupped? is it steel or aluminum? Also, who did you order from.

Stainless not cupped. Ordered from boats.net which I will never do again. They just refunded my $ to me today without an explaination as to why. Guess I will go back to the drawing board....

I ended up going with Iboats this time and my props should be here by thurs. I went ahead and ordered a 3 and 4 blade to see what the true difference is between. The 3 blade is a 11 and the 4 blade is a 9. I'll see what happens and post some results. Im not really looking for much results out of the 4 blade other than overall planing and will probably just use it when Im fishing skinny water. The 3 blade however is 2 pitch sizes up from stock so Im waiting to see how it does. Once I finally find out which size is best then I will spend the cash on a nice stainless down the road. For now, If these dont work out then consider it a $100 mistake. Still cheaper than a new stainless and twice the amount of experimentation.
