I desire to upgrade to a 4 blade high thrust prop. I feel there is too much slip with the stock 3 blade prop.

My first choice is the Tohatsu 4 blade 10"DX7"P high thrust (Part#3ZOB645143)

I am also aware that Solas offers two 4 blade high thrust props for this motor:
- 10"DX7"P (Part#5113-100-07)
- 10"DX5"P (Part#5113-100-05)

My first choice would be the Tohatsu.

Any advice would be appreciated.

I have a 20 hp Tohatsu and changed it to your first choice the 4 blade 10"DX7"P I guess you could say i was over impressed as it gave me way to much bow lift. I switch back to the 3 blade that it came with and use the 4 blade as a spare now. For me on a 23 ft Irwin was more than i needed that being said I'm a bit over powered anyway.
