    Not sure which one I need to buy?

    Need a replacement prop for a 2006 90 HP Evinrude ETEC.

    Which one?

    13-3/4 x 15

    13-1/4 x 17

    I am not worried about speed :wink:

    Paul I would get the 17 and have it cupped and it will give you better bite and fuel efficiency. I have a link to a local guy that does all mine and he is good and resonable if you need it. Any good shop can cup it.

    Paul in my opinion you can't beat Michigan wheel for alum. Props.

    Don't overlook the Piranha with the replaceable composite blades. That's what I use most the time, it's about as tough as aluminum, maybe 5-10% slower, but it only costs 20 bucks to replace a blade and you can try a different pitch just by ordering a different set of blades.

    I got their name by accident,,, as they sold to Bass Pro or Cabela's,,, I forget which,,,,, but this old boy gives you the same price he sells to Bass Pro or Cabella's. Then those folks mark up the price....
