WHEN TO CON­SIDER A CUS­TOM PROP

SA Bass - - Technology -

His­tor­i­cally, swap­ping to a cus­tom prop has been a way to gain speed, but the stock props on to­day’s modern rigs are per­fectly ca­pa­ble. How­ever, own­ers of older rigs might still see im­prove­ment with cus­tom props, and those run­ning boats ex­tra-high might re­quire a “chop­per” or cleaver prop to pre­vent blowout.

Sev­eral cus­tom prop shops have earned high ac­co­lades in the bass boat world, in­clud­ing Mark’s High Per­for­mance Pro­pel­lers near In­di­anapo­lis, Ind., and Per­for­mance Pro­pel­ler of Nashville, Tenn. Both can tweak and re­pair stock props.
