Outboard prop advice?

I need a new prop for my 60 hp Merc. It is a 3 blade 10-3/8 x 11, 13 spline. On the net, Vortex props seem considerably cheaper than Merc originals. Are there any opinions out there on quality, performance,etc?

They are good props, a little more cup for bow lift. I would have no problem using them.
Another suggestion might be to use a hustler or some type of hubbed prop if you think you might hit something. The upfront cost is still cheaper than merc and if you need a new one you just buy the prop and reuse your hub then it's about 1/2 the cost.

Thanks Samarai

You da man! You have really been helpful as I have wound my way thru various issues with a used boat this year.

Sorry

I spelled your handle wrong. That stuff is important to me. I am off to my lake in the morning.
