Anyone have an 18" RX3 and looking for a 19"?  I have about 70 hours on my 19" and its just a touch low on rpm as I am hitting 5400 rpm light load but only about 5200 with a 4 guys and gear full bait well.  Dealer says I am ok but my gut tells me to drop an inch of pitch.  Anyone have anything?  This prop is in perfect shape never touched bottom- knock on wood.

the catalogue does not show an 18" RX3 - I would also be interested in one - maybe a visit to a prop shop for some tweaking is in the near future

Yeah 17" is the next size down.  I did a speed run the other day 2 guys fishing gear, 60% fuel summer time dirty bottom, 5300 against tide with wind and 5350 with tide against wind.   I would like to be seeing 200 more RPM ideally.  Maybe a prop shop can teak it a bit to get a little more rpm.
