I purchased the Hustler to replace the 12 x 15 OEM Johnson prop. My OEM prop ventilated badly in turns and I had read several positive reviews online that claimed the Hustler reduced prop slip in turns. My experience confirmed that the Hustler performed far better in turns than the OEM prop so that was a big plus. I found that RPMs at WOT were 600 RPM lower with the Hustler compared to the OEM prop. My OEM ran 5700 and the Hustler was running at just under 5100 RPM The Hustler was 1.5 MPH faster at top speed and surprisingly came up on plane faster despite the lower max RPM. It is a good performer for me but the 600 RPM drop in RPM was a surprise. My engine WOT RPM is 5500 so I would have probably gotten better performance with the 12.5 x 13 pitch prop. I would suggest dropping 1-2 inches in pitch to compared to other aluminum prop products if you want to maintain the same operating RPM. This was not 5 star rated because the rpm drop was so great.
