If you gain 2 to 3 mph's through the midrange and WOT. Plus better boat handling perfomance then a $300 solas versus a $600 Merc prop is a no brainer. Pays for itself.

I'm willing to bet the 17 pitch in either prop will be a good set up. The Mirage Plus is easier to find and usually cheaper.

People with cars and SUVs that use 93 will be paying out the arse in most places. Here 93 was 80 cent more than 87.
