Hi Darren,

As a rule of thumb, when the size is the same, a two blade is more efficient, as the blade surface is bigger.
The threeblade 'sounds' faster, as there is one blade more per revolution hitting the water.

Testing with identical boats shows that the twoblade draws less amps, yielding more runtime.

Having said this, the shape of the prop, the pitch and degree of sharpening can make or break your performance.

A dull twoblade will always perform less than a sharpened threeblade...

Regards, Jan.
