No,that's only a band aid for a poor setup ,have someone check your setup ,prop height,venting,tweaking your prop,all those things are the way to go ,check with Steve's props for his advise

I work on a lot of boats that have them I know because they will get your legs. For playing I don`t see what it would hurt.

both true, but a positive for pulling tubes, and slow trolling, they will keep the nose down...

I have a long and wide boat that wallowed around to get out wf the water, spend 6 grand to replace a good 115 h.p with a 150 h.p. or 50$foil , Not a hard choice for me . I am not a pro, this is my hobby , I love the differance in
performance. I am happy with my choice.
