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.


From Genesis: "And God promised men that good and obedient wives would be found in all corners of the earth."

Then He made the earth round...and He laughed and laughed and laughed!

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