Ok prop.

I have an 85 stars and stripes with the powerslot transmission. Would this prop make a difference in my performance over the 3 blade that is on it now?

Yes, it will change the operational characteristics of the boat. It will do all of these things, some desireable and others may not: Lower engine rpm at target speeds by about 200 rpm, should be smoother than 3 blade, increase in hole shot performance, may increase top speed, change the size of the bump in back (where the wakes meet at speed).

For $100, unless it's damaged you can't go wrong.

Thank you. I just need to verify I have a keyed shaft.

Lower engine rpm at target speeds by about 200 rpm probably , should be smoother than 3 blade probably , increase in hole shot performance probably not, hole shot will be lessened because of greater pitch, may increase top speed maybe, but generally speaking 3 blade props are faster than 4 blades
