    Only hitting 45-50 at max RPM for 454 mag

    Had BBlades lab my bravo-1 24 pitch and barrel shortened, but only been out 2 times so still figuring it out. Here is what I can say... with 60+gal fuel, 2 riders I now hit the limiter(beeping) at 67mph. Most noticeable improvement is when under about 45mph I don't need to use tabs to control...

    Only hitting 45-50 at max RPM for 454 mag

    Something doesn't add up? Wonder if the prop was reworked at sometime and didn't work out well. Can u try another prop from a friend? Just doing the math a 23P prop should be good for 60-63. I also had 502Mag 230SX Stingray similar to Glenn and would run 64 with 23P mirage I now have 270 w/496HO...

    Prop work advice needed.

    After communicating with BBlades he feels B1 should produce better results vs Hydromotive. Spring here yet? Will update then...

    Prop work advice needed.

    Just to get a little more out of it? Not sure if lab would add any MPH or not. I think BBlades said need to remove bow lift since it's not needed for the convincor 270.

    Prop work advice needed.

    With winter I need advice on who and which prop I should have worked. B1 24p vs QIV-X 24p. Both are 4bld. 2002 Convincor 496HO with normal load, usually 1/2 tank gas or more runs 65, but when the stars and moon align then just over 67. GPS. The only difference I notice is when under about 40mph...
