Sheri12, you're the one who has to determine if you're satisfied with the performance and that will most likely require a little trial and error. If you have a network, borrowing props is the least expensive way to figure out what you want. After that, the used prop market offers a lot of value. With that in mind, take a look at Bass BOat Central Props classifieds. You'll find a wide variety of props in the pitch range you're after. Play around with a few and you'll get that beauty dialed in soon.

Personally, I think 26.5 is still too high. If folks are having good luck with 24P props I'd go that route.


BUT, here's a link to a used 26.5 Bravo I XS. It's not perfect, but what the heck...close enough for gov't work?

That would be great! I need all the help I can get. I did end up pulling the trigger today on a 24 FURY 4. Larger diameter and has 8 vent holes so more flexibility. I'll let you know how it works out. It's only money right?

We have a 1995 Pulsare 2100br with a 2007 ProXs 250, and we can run 75 MPH with 4 on board and it planes out in a matter of seconds. There are no plugs on the vent holes and we have 13-1/2 inches of setback. We also have a 28 trophy and again, getting on plane; a matter of seconds. We have tried a 30 pitch cleaver style and never have we had a planning issue (power). In my opinion, you need venting at the prop to let the prop slip and allow the motor to get to an RPM range where it is making decent power and torque. Again just my opinion.

Good Luck
Chuck

I might still have a 25 pitch Tempest you could try for the cost of shipping, but I have to make sure I still have it.

Default 24 FURY 4 was the ticket

Hey Everyone,
I had a chance to try the 24 FURY 4 and it shot out of the hole like a rocket. It has 8 vent holes and I left them all open. I'm not sure what top end looks like. I'm expecting it will be slower at higher RPM's but I will let you know. I'm just glad I can pull by daughter skiing without having to put everyone in the bow. )
