Would a three blade prop for a Minn Kota Fortrex be any better than my stock 2 blade? Would it be anymore powerful? Would it help in anyway?

2 blade = more power
3 blade = more speed

At least that's what I experienced with my old 67lb TM. The 3 blade was real jerky if speed control over #3. On speed 1 or 2 not much difference.

At the risk of asking a dumb question.... would a 3-blade prop change the amp draw on the trolling motor?
