    That is what i put on my boat this year, i felt it met their claims. I did not notice any speed decrease but definitely pulled harder. I was only able to get out twice this year once with a 19p and the second time a 17p due too the 19 being a bit too much to have good power for water sports, but put the engine in the correct rpm range. I came from a 17p TP 3bl. I think it did drop my rpm slightly but i don't recall how much.

      What size boat and HP are you planning to install the prop on?

      Unlike some others, all I run is Hustlers. They give great performance and I have seen or experienced zero defects.

      It's a 24 foot pontoon with 90HP Force outboard. I don't know if I'd benefit from a raked prop.

        I doubt you will benefit from a raked prop. You might benefit from a 4 blade prop, but I will need to defer to someone with experience in that.

          A prop with more Rake can help lift the Bow a bit, but it also can tolerate high mount a bit better too, often a problem with pontoons

          I've tried many brands and models of Props over the Decades, and have always chosen OMC or Mercury Props, even on my Volvo. You do get what you pay for when it comes to propellers, especially when it comes to Higher Performance Props,
