Looking to buy a 23" Mercury Laser II RH prop for my 2004 18'.

Currently running 23" Mirage Plus. Boat is standard 350 MAG/MPI, Alpha.

Very happy w/ the Mirage, very strong/efficient mid range cruiser (45mph @ 3250 rpms) and good top end (about 63mph @ 4900rpms), but want something slightly different as a second prop.

Thoughts?
Offerings?

Thanks!

Jay,
I thought it was a 23 but when I cleaned the grease off the markings it says 25. Let me take a closer look at its condition tonight and then I will let you know. If it needs a little work, maybe the solution is to take it down to a 24 and have the best of both worlds?

Sorry.

Interested!

I took a closer look a the prop. It has not been polished but looks to be in fine shape. There are a couple of tiny places on the blade that you could deburr with a file. It has the flo torque cavity so you could transfer it right onto your set up and use all the same hardware. They seem to go for around $250 so with the small nicks I'd like to get $225.

Let me know .......thx

If that one does not work out, this ran real on my 22 and Fred's 18 very stable good out of the hole.

My question also, why a laser? I could think of 3-5 props other than a Laser:confused: which would perform very well on a 18.

Two separate recommendations from people whose opinion I value.
Plus I need a back up.

We'll see

Seems like you would consider equal or better.

Absolutely.

But I'm not looking to reinvent the wheel - just a nice back up prop - or two.

Can't overstate how happy I am w/ the boat as is.

Has anyone run the Merc Rev 4 on an 18?
I saw the post about the Turbo 4 blade; I did test one of those vs the Rev 4 on my 24' Super and the Rev 4 was better in every way...

I don't recall anyone trying the Rev 4 on an 18 Classic but I'd almost guarantee that it would be a great fit. The extra length of the Rev 4's barrel would also give it an advantage over a Turbo.
