Does anyone make a SS prop set with a four blade rear prop for the 290 DP-E? I've searched the internet for hours and come up with nothing but the Volvo A series aluminum and the Solas replacement aluminum set as the only duoprop sets that can be had with a rear four blade. And a whole lot of contradictory opinions on aluminum vs SS on these drives, especially on a heavier commercial vessel. Seems as though I'll have to stick with the A3s I've been using but I think I could really benefit from switching to stainless if I can maintain planing and load carrying capability...

Think 2X about the SS vs Alum. I kept mine AL bc in the event you run over something, I'd rather replace my props vs my outdrive.

Ya, I hear you. But the SS would help alot in the kelp and where I'm at it's mostly sand that I hit crossing the bar, so I think the SS would be an advantage.
