Old prop is 25 % smaller and no cup...I would say that was your problem. Glad you found the problem.

What brand prop is that? It has a lot more cup in it than the new backwater prop I just got. Lost a little speed going from a worn GD prop to the new backwater prop and I think some of it has to do with the lack of cup in the prop.

The new one is from my local mud buddy dealer.

I ate up a brand new prop on my pro drive in 45 minutes in sand. Looked just like that!
