I'm am wondering if I took a file and sharpened my trolling motor prop blades, if it would cut thru slop better? Come on I bet someone in here tried it. Did it work?

Does work a little. I have a "the Goat" on my trollingmotor, which made a huge difference. I also added the Kipawa prop. Together my Fortrex will chew a path threw hydrilla.

I've been sharpening and balancing my props the last few years. It makes for a really quiet motor.

Tractor supply has them for less than $5.

They work good on lawn mower blades as well! Haha

Me thinks some folks have a lot of spare time.


"..The pleasantist angling is to see the fish
Cut with her golden oars the silver stream,
And greedily devour the treacherous bait.

Great idea Steez, do you just glue weights on it if needed?

No, just file a little more off the EAR that is lower on the balance device. I like the Ninja prop; very sharp and it will cut.
