They were great - much better ride and handling. Didn't get the chance to test top speed though since my rev limiter kicked me and told me to slow down. I did have a boat full. Also the drives pushed the boat up onto plane the same as on calm water. Just hold the revs at 4000 rpm for about 5 seconds and its gone. Throws a small rooster tail. Looks and sounds cool. Need bigger props to bring the r's back down to arround 5300 to 5400. At 5700 at WOT now on calm water with the 26 BRAVO's.
