I need to replace my trolling motor prop after a harsh run in with some rocks. What are the advantages/disadvantages of a 2 blade prop vs a 3 blade prop. Does one give more power? Is one more weedless?

Won't a 3-blade cut through vegetation better, or do I have it backwards?

I have a MK 101lb and had a three blade for a few years that I loved. It seemed to start up slower/not jump as bad and seemed quieter. However, the two blade seems to have more power and speed.

3 blade for vegetation and 2 blade for efficiency/speed in open water.
