Jason likes to prop boats like that. When we picked my Dad's boat up he had a 25p Mirage Plus on it and he was right, it pulled like crazy through the mid range, but would be all over the limiter. So I came across a good deal on a 27p Mirage Plus and threw it on. It did take away some of the mid range grunt, but we picked up about 3-5mph and it still touches the limiter from time to time. So we have kept the 27 on the boat. Good thing is, I think that 25p Mirage Plus is going to work nicely on my boat!!! But I would say you should at least try to track one down to try. Get one for a good price, that way if it doesn't work you shouldn't have any problem getting your money back out of it.
If you are interested I have a 25P & 27P Mirage for sale. The 25P got me to 69.9 MPH GPS with the stock engine. The Mirage prop with identical pitch will turn 200-300 higher RPM's then the Mirage Plus. I picked up 4 MPH going from a 24P Bravo 1 5150 RPM to 69.9 MPH 4900 RPM 25P Mirage. The Mirage trim range was so much lower with the natural bow lift in the Mirage.
I also tried a 27P Mirage Plus 66 MPH 4400 RPM.
My 27P Mirage has never been wet or on a boat. I say this because if you can turn the 25P Mirage Plus you can turn the 27P Mirage at about the same RPM & my slip #'s with the Mirage were @ 10%.
If you want to try it just let me know.
Does the 27 have a removable hub and if so how much. I'm running a 26 Bravo right now and believe there's more. I need the removable hub option due to my 1-1/4" prop shaft.
I might have to get with you on the 25. I'm thinking the 25 Mirage+ might be a little to much for my boat since I will be spinning it up to 6500, and I will need all the bow lift I can get with losing all the weight out of the transom with the LS motor. I'm actually thinking a 24p P5x might be in my future.
I would think the 27P Mirage would be the BOM for your rig. A little slow out of the hole but if you can turn that sucker she lifts the bow up with very little trim, the boat runs at a very nice level, she will fly. The prop is still in the OEM Box.
If you can turn the 27P at 6,000 RPM that is 91 MPH with 10% slip and 1.5 drive ratio.
