Default Signature propellers

Has anyone used signature propellers SL 4? How did it compare to a bravo. Need some 30s and can get them for half the price of merc stuff.

They are a copy of the real Bravo 1.
However, the real deal is more consistent in geometry.
We sell their propellers but stick with the real Bravo 1 for those applications that need them.
We do like theor 4 blade B2 props and B3 propellers.

I have 30p sl4 . They hold their own. I'm looking a the 30p 5 blades. I would like o see better cruise speeds and little mor bow lift. Drives are 3 1/2 below deadrise. Getting some slip. 41 ft performance twin 572. Boat had 28 bravo 1's when I bought it. They were in ruff shape

5 blade props will give you more stern lift not bow lift.
However, 5 blades props can be modified to create more bow lift than their stock version therein creating more overall lift.
Consider trying our 4-SPEED.

BBLADES 4-SPEED (sterndrive application) from BBlades Professional Propellers

That is a link to the BBLADES 4-SPEED.
Dropping the drive will give more bow lift.
It will also increase drag and affect speed. You will also get meore stern lift with the 5 blade unless the diameter is reduced.

Brett - If you reduce the 5 blade prop diameter to get less stern lift, will that affect bow lift (get more, the same or less)?
