4 blade kicker prop
« on: October 01, 2017, 01:05:06 PM »

  For those of us who have a small gearcase  kicker. Amita has a 4 blade prop which I tried out this year at  buoy 10 this year.  I chose one with a lower pitch to raise the rpm level at troll for better steering steering control.  It worked great. with the higher rpm and better thrust from the motor , it made controlling the boat while trolling much easier even high wind and rough waters. The only draw back was that in heavy seaweed it has a tendency to wind up in the prop. This also happens on my brothers 9,9 High trust Yamaha. So I was not concerned so much.

 My kicker is a merc 15 fourstroke on a 19 SR.

Good tip!  High thrust props are great improvements over most kicker props.   I put one on a 6 hp Evonrude 2 stroke and it became amazing!
