Has anyone ever used one? A lot of people claim an increase in thrust and better at cutting through grass. I just stumbled on this tonight. I was curious if this thing is actually better than a standard prop.

I have one. Pulled it off and went back to the Machete so that I could use the T&H aluminum prop nut. It's not compatible with that prop nut.

I have been using one now for over 10 years. On two different boats. would not have any other prop on my trolling motor. Seen no problem with them in weeds, and in open water its great. I don't have to run my trolling motor on as high of power as you do the original props. I got a clear one so I can see if there is any line wrapped around the shaft. I would and do recommend them for your trolling motor.

Thanks for the info. The reviews I have read seem to be mostly positive. A few guys claim it burnt out their TM. I'm surprised that after market props are not talked about much. It would seem that if they help for thrust and weedlessness (Is that a word? Lol) that more people would use them.
