Re: Small outboard plastic prop?

I had a plastic prop on a Honda 2 HP outboard. I could actually flex the tips of the prop a little bit with my fingers, so I would guess it would flex under full, load. In any event, it provided plenty of thrust on both a soft floor inflatable and a 12 foot Jonboat. If it is the same or lower pitch as the existing prop it should let the motor rev more at WOT?
