    27 Daytona Prop

    Has anyone tried a Herings 5 blade on a 27 Daytona? Ive got a 07 with a 850hp blower motor, thinking about trying one just curious if anyone had and what results they had gotten.

    If you have a bravo style drive, I'd be real careful about running a 5 blade prop - especially on a single screw. That is a ton of torque with not much slip...It will probably give you better mid-range and better top end, but it may be at the expense of accelerating the demise of your bravo.

    If you're running a six, nxt or something a bit more hearty than an XR design - rock on.

    Just my 2 cents.

    I ran a labbed 33 Maximus and stock 32 Maximus.Didn't like them,felt bogged down.The best setup is 34 stock Bravo,2" shorty,propshaft level with the lowest point of the sponsons.890hp blower motor,1:27 lower.This felt the best,remembering i race it.Trouble with it is i was 103 and on the limiter @ 5800 with a fair bit left.Tried going down 1 1/2" but didn't like it.Now have a 1/2" spacer,still with the 34,on the limiter @ 106.Racing again in 3 weeks and going to practice with a 36 Bravo.XR and shorty have been great.Last race for the Eliminator though,into another boat.Hope this helps.

    The pic is of my old 28 Daytona. I wish my 27 threw that kind of a roost, lol.

    Feels good, diffenetly faster but it is a little hard to get on plan, I have to keep the rpms around 3000 and let it roll over. With the 1" shorty I didnt have any issues. Ratio is 1.35 and a IMCO SC, prop is a bravo-1 32 labbed.

    Running a 29 hydro 4 blade with a Bmax poker run. Boat seems to be setup perfect, but MIGHT use a little more top end. Currently at 116 mph with a 950 HP Beck motor. Cant get er to throw much of a roost though, lol....
