    Another Prop Question

    I would like to maximize my speed at cruising RPM's. Right now I have a 21" mirage+. My limited knowledge on the subject would be to go with a 23". Of course, top end should be better but the hole shot would suffer.
    Here is the question.

    What changes could I expect from a 4 blade? or even 5 blade?

    alot slower on the top end ,would be your big difference, but the 4&5 bld midrange accleration is going to be greatly improved .Darin M
