I have not tried the M435 but it has the same diameter as the Y535 but it has less pitch, also being an M series the ears have been removed.

I thing you may have some performance loss with the M435 but someone who tried it already may have a better answer, I believe that the M435 has been covered in the Vegas thread (V2).

However the Y535 is overall one oft the best performing prop.

Are you talking about the 3 blade prop?? IE the M435/3?? If so, a lot of folks use it.

If you are talking about a 2 blade prop, I have not seen it yet, but I have a 2 blade X435 on one of my kids boats because it keeps her a little slower. When she gets more experience, I will put a faster prop on it. It is also a good prop to break a motor in on (can get more Rs and get on pipe easier during break in).

Myself, I am stuck in the Y535. I have tried quite a few other props, and always come back to the Y535.

I have used the M435 almost exclusively, set very shallow (1/2 inch bottom of boat to mid or bottom of strut) it will run very fast.....but be careful there is low chance of recovery if you spin-out. Sam's stock boat has not been passed yet and Sean puts together the fastest stock and mod boats I have seen using the 2 blade.....his Mod boat screams.
