Admittedly, I'm old school.
But the conventional wisdom always was that if you run in stumps, sticks, rocks and other nasty stuff - you run a stainless prop.

Now I see a prop / outboard guy on a show the other day saying - No, in that stuff you run an aluminum, so that when you hit something it breaks the prop and doesn't damage the lower unit.

I once broke TWO of those things in one day on Lake O th' Pines, swearing I'd never run another aluminum prop. And I haven't.

Have things changed?
"..The pleasant’st angling is to see the fish
Cut with her golden oars the silver stream,
And greedily devour the treacherous bait.”

Aluminum is good for beer cans.
