Default Best MotorGuide prop for open water trolling?

Looking for some input on which Motor Guide prop is best for big water open water trolling.

2 or 3 blade going to be more efficient.

I have a MG 36V 105lb 60"

If I had a 36 volt motorguide I would run the metal three blade prop. MOTORGUIDE METAL MACHETE 3

I put a minnkota weedless wedge2 on mine shortly after I got it 2 years ago, I took my son bowfishing we went through some cattails and the leading edge of the motorguide prop looked like a beaver chewed it up, it's so thin and sharp.
Did some research on the web and some of the bass guys where useing minnkota props on the xi5s, so I put on on it works real good, run smooth and picked up close to 1 mph on top speed.
I can't remember the model number though, but it fit right on, a guy might be able to find the threads searching the web.

Can you elaborate on which Minn Kota prop you put on your Xi5? Was it a 36V or 24V?
