    So what is the big advantage of four blade vs. three blade? Does it manifest itself in significant MPH?

    Ayuh,...... Ya might be able to stay on plane at a slightly slower speed with a 4 blade, but top end will probably be slightly lower as well,.....

    Typically a 4-blade gives better acceleration out of the hole than a 3-blade but the 3-blade gives a little better top end.
