Has anybody ever used one? How did it work for you?

I have replaced 3 shafts on my 25 merc and the one I am running now is bent as well.
I have gone through more props than I care to count, the stumps at Reelfoot have taken there toll on my motor and I am ready to try a prop guard of some kind.
I like the looks of the Mac's River Runner the best.
I am just wondering if they work and how much it will slow my boat down??

They are great! I had one on a 30 HP Evinrude that we used to duck hunt with. It really works to protect the prop......but it makes the tiller a little harder to turn the boat. Other than that they work great.

Google a rock hopper motor guard. I use one of these when I am on the White River and it is low . It is made out of stainless and works good. It can cause some cavitation on some boats.

Woodyard did it slow your boat down? it looks like it would have less drag than the Mac's river runner.
