I run a Bravo 1 from BBlades on my 22. The Bravo's pitch is underrated by about 1 1/2 numbers. You will need about a 25 pitch. The labbed versions are available in every pitch number. They work very well with a shorty. If you don't have a shorty or raised X then you might want to stick with a 3 blade. I turn a 30p Bravo 1 @ 5,400 (yes, bumping limiter!) and over 85 mph. (HP 525 EFI, Imco shorty)

BTW, there is a ton of info on propping a Donzi Classic on Donzi.net.

Later to the party! I just became a member and was reading all the 'threads'. I have a 96' 22 Classic, stock 502 EFI w/ Bravo 1 1:50 gears. currently running a Bravo 1 26p four blade and it GPS'd at 74 at 4800 with 3/4 full gas tank, 4 adults, small wind-chop. It came with a 23 3-blade mirage - experienced alot of slip and cavitation in the turns. The Bravo 1 24p four blade bumped the rev limiter at 70mph. Hope this info was helpful
