see now all you have to worry about is how deep you want to dig in your pockets cuz a 38 kohler with a reduction and like a 62" or more 3 blade will be beast

a reduction adds on average 33% more power to a prop because you can pitch it low and get more thrust

it lowers the noise level and lowers the stress on the motor crank tremendously

and txba is the guys user name on here
