Is there a truly weedless TM prop?

I'm looking to upgrade the prop on my Minn Kota C2 Endura 45 pound TM. Looking for something more weedles than the stock one. I recdently ordered and received a Kipawa 314 High Performance Weedless Propeller from Amazon but haven't tried it yet. Minn Kota sells a MINN KOTA MKP-6 PROP 2061125 WEEDLESS WEDGE on Amazon but don't know if it's any better than the stock one. Customer reviews vary.

Anyone have an after market prop that is better than stock? Thanks!

We have a MinnKota weedless prop for our 30 and 55. I got the 30 at Walmart and the 55 at Bass Pro.  They work, never have to clear weeds from  the prop. I think a couple of times had to clear them from the shaft. But that was our going into a thick mat.   Now it is not weedless in reverse. So plowing thru the weeds in forward only.  I was at Beaver yesterday and never had to clear the prop.  I had to do a little research with serial number to get the prop for the 55. The store associate was not helpful, more interested in selling me some electronics.  I would go all in on a weedless prop.

Thanks for the info, Bob. On the Minn Kota weedless prop, I guess you are talking about the Weedless Wedge? That’s the only other major brand weedless prop I’ve found

For the endura 55 is was a weedless wedge.   Can't remember for the 30lb.  Which do you have?

Thank’s, Bob. I have a Minn Kota C2 Endura 45 pound unit with the stock prop that came on it. Ive never been happy with it. Also it wobbles and vibrates. I’m ready to upgrade.

I got a weedless prop based on Robert's recommendation as an essential upgrade. I agree, this thing is awesome. I never have to clear the prop of weeds, if they get a little heavy I reverse full speed then full speed ahead and they get blasted off.

I also recommend this to pad the mounting area and reduce motor vibration(and the chance of it jumping off, really helps when it's a metal transom)

That’s great. Thanks, Craig. I’m going to return the prop I bought and get the MK Weedless Wedge. And I’ll check out the transom mount too. 

Thanks again to you both!

I also recommend the ProControl EZ Mount II. Replaces the stock mount, easier to tighten up(knobs vs wings) and can be used to bow mount as well.

I recently purchased a MK Weedless Wedge for my 55 but haven't installed it yet.  Have you noticed any decrease in battery life or top speed?

I never noticed a difference in speed after switching to the weedless wedge, but there might be an increase in battery life because the weeds don't hang on. The only decrease I've noticed is the amount of time I spend cleaning the prop.
