If you are looking for the cheapest then go with the Evinrude aluminum prop. Prop hub and thrust washer come with the prop.
If the plan is stainless steel the Evinrude Viper will fit but you will need to buy the correct thrust washer. 
When it comes to other brand props, I do not know enough to advise what will fit or not.

Hi deford,
I also purchased a G2 115 HO at the beginning of this season and tried some aluminum props. I finally saved up my pennies and put a BRP RX3 on and I can't even describe the improvement in performance on my boat. The RX3 14.5 x 15 is giving me great holeshots and the same WOT top speed as the aluminum 13.25 x 17 x 4 blade. The adjustable vents are great. My limited experience says you will not get the full benefit of the torque this engine cranks out with a lesser prop. I'm towing whatever I want with this setup. Yesterday I had 4 on a tube with 6 on the 21 foot pontoon boat and I could do whatever I wanted. Just thought I should give some real time feedback.
Cheers,
Wab

Thanks for the great review! I’ve got to quit being such a tight A, I did order a PowerTech Ptz18 ss prop for $320, I’ll let you know when I get the motor and prop installed, your Right ,all the reviews I’ve read say the Rx is the prop to have!!
