My Mud Motor prop looks like a trolling motor prop, 2 blade made of stainless I think. I've rounded the edges and beat the heck out of it in rock bottom rivers and it keeps going.
I'll never buy another mud motor without electric start, pull starting a direct drive 6' shaft filled with grease in winter is a workout.

Stainless would be the way to go but it don't give too easy and could bend a prop shaft or something else when hitting rock.
I'd probably get a real stainless prop that is destined for the scrap yard and work on it. Most have a rubber hub that will give way if you hit something solid enough and may help with vibrations a little if the blades aren't exactly the same.
Is a mud rig just for mud? or something thats used in a more swampy area?
