nice looking RIB.  please post  a couple videos running at speed with the motor in the shot.  Light weight E-TECs are always impressive on high speed RIBs. Can be a wild ride.[biggrin]

The speed readings is from Navionics HD, so it is very accurate...
I didn't make the calculations about the slip percentage, but I think that this prop at high speed reacts like it is 16", or something like that...
Looking the way the boat goes out of the water, I think this is let's say a "multi pitch" prop...

Anyway, this is simply the best prop I have test until now, so it will be my main prop, until I find something more interesting...

Thanks boys,

Not tried a ballistic yet ! Then less drag than a viper and higher revs your down on ! Better prop for the job

Well only saying nr don't ad up. Even though cuping ads pitch, it's usually no more then 1" more. In your case, not even 2" would be enough.

I also have the diagnostic tool, and I have a small error at test rpm, but the error inreases as the rpm gets higher. If you say yours doesn't, maby it doesn't, but normally they do.

If you're happy its all fine.
