I just bought a yamaha 25 2 smoke and sometime in the future want to buy a ss prop for it. Im not really concerned about top speed.

Why not?  What kind of boat do u have?  I had a powertech 10 x 11 3 blade powertech on my old classic.  Ran 31.5 mph and 6100 rpm which is pretty good for me until I added a standard moderate cupped on mine.  The result came better at 33 mph and 5950 rpm.

Its depend on your boat and the load.

well my load is usually going to be just 2 guys and poles/tackle so pretty light. What advantage does cupping give to a prop?

pending on amount of cup added, but generally it gets the prop to stay connected with the water better. this is helpful when turning quickly and when the motor is high on the transom. not sure about with little boats/motors, but te offshore center consoles add cup to lift the bow or stern more, pending on where te lip is added on the blade
