If I was to vote on what prop I WISH I needed, it would be a 30+. However, I have 32:1 gears and a stock 454/330 so I run a 21p.

A few years ago I tested 4 props back to back. A BBlades Bravo 28 modified for bow lift, a BBlades Mirage + 27 basic lab, a standard Mirage 25 that has been labbed at one time and a stock rev 4 25.

I did the same thing with each prop. I would tell my passenger when I hit a certain rpm, 3000, 3500, 4000, etc and he would right down speeds. Then we would rurn around at the same spot and run WFO on the way back for about 2 miles and see what top speed I could get. The difference between the slowest and fastest prop was .8 mph. LOL
