Default Apollo XHS props

I still haven't decided on a prop for a 2005 Johnzuki DF 140. Any pros and cons on Apollo XHS props? I realize they are a real inexpensive stainless prop. I fish around a ton of rocks and cannot justify $400 plus.

I know the theorical formula for pitch, can anyone explain the effect of diameter? I have searched and read a ton of posts. it is not clear other than that is how the manufacturer made them.

Thanks, Brian

i like you fish a ton around rock's and shell bar's.i buy the cheapest aluminum prop i can cuz i know it's gonna get trashed.i would rather spend 50 buck's a year on props than 1500 buck's on a lower unit.if your not worried about being the fastest or performance then i think it is the way to least for me anyway

Vortex and Solas both make good props.
