Can't say that I agree with this one either. There are way too many variables that we should take into consideration, many of which Jason has already pointed out. More blades usually mean more efficiency, but things like X dem. height, boat weight, CG, even prop rotation could be a factor.Originally Posted by yahoo
from my experience, the Herring will outperform the Merc Racing lab props MOST of the time, but not always. And as already pointed out, handling can be increased even if speed stays the same.
Remember, Lots of races have been won by a boat that may not have had the fastest top speed.
It's not always how fast you go, but how well you go fast.
