I have a 2010 300 hp I just installed on my boat. It is a 24' hull that weighs about 5k to 5500 lbs. I've asked my dealer for a recommendation and he suggested a 15x17 Rebel or Viper. That seems wrong to me. Anyone here have a 300 and what are you running? I have never run this engine, on this boat, so I have no idea where to start.

What makes you think he is wrong and the Rebel are better suited to heavy deep vee hulls and I would think a 17 inch would be a good starting point.

I felt the Rebel prop was a good choice, just not the pitch. I guess I was under the impression, a 19 pitch would be better. I could be wrong, it has happened many times before.

the Rebel prop due to its blade design appears to be about 2" in pitch different from other popular props. A 17" Rebel turns about the same rpm as a 19" Viper on the same boat.

Try HUEY's suggestion.

With all of the "political correctness" in the news lately, is there any truth in the rumor that the Rebel propeller will be discontinued. Or rather replaced by a name that won't offend some of the overly sensitive population?

If the carvings on Stone Mountain, Georgia are coming down, if Washington and Jefferson are coming off or our currency, if anything with the name of "Lee" is to be changed, surely the Rebel propeller will have to be renamed. 

Have there been any demonstrations outside of the Evinrude headquarters yet? I might have missed it in the news.

I have the same engine on a 23' FAC Dusky and use a 15" Rebel. It is about the same weight. WOT 5600rpm

I think  a Viper would be a bad choice.

I agree. We tried the Viper and there was too much slip. Go with the Rebel.

I have a single 300 G2 on a Rosborough 246. Appx 7000 pounds.  The  Rebel 17 is not as smooth as the 19. The 17 produces the proper RPM range at WOT.  With the 19, RPMs are a little below recommended range at WOT. You need to try both. Water conditions and load affect performance. I need to have a spare prop on board so I will have a 17 and 19 (three blade).  I am curious about other props including a 4 blade. My dealership does not think a 4 blade is the proper choice.

I have a 24' Formula sport fish that is awful heavy. I run a G1 300 with a 17 pitch Rebel. With an average load I can see 6k RPM.
Works great in reverse and running straight. Seems to loose a little grip in tight turns.

A also have a 19 pitch viper for a spare. The performance at fast cruise and top end is a little better than the Rebel. But reverse/out of the hole grip is no where near the Rebel

That seems on the lower side of where you should be, 200 rpm more would be ideal. I'm surprised you're only turning 5600 rpm with a 15".

I picked up an old 15x17 SST prop as a base to start with. I'll post the findings after I run the boat.
