    I have an 05 25 2 stroke merc. I am looking at either a Power Tech or Ballistic, probably 3 blade 10x13 Anyone have any other insight?

    Check out turning point propellors. I have the same motor as you with a 15 pitch. Was about $150 new. The best thing is they have removable hubs. So if you ever blow a hub, it can be fixed on the water (if you have a spare). And if you ever get a different motor (merc) you can just get a different splined hub.

    Glad you had good luck with a TP

    I just did a heads up on the lake ...

    The SWA4 Blew the TP away ... No Comparison

    All things identical the Powertech  held like a Pit Bull ...

    When the TP ventilated it was so loud it sounded like an air boat prop ...
