I can't say for sure what I think of it since haven't run it myself yet, but Kunkel says its really really wild ride... hope to tame it a little with time/setup, but I have no illusions it'll be an easy boat to run fast in.

Big thanks to Jeff at JC performance for discussing the 102mph 24Super with me last week... hopefully I can play with drive depth a little and get this one dialed in next year.


Looks like maiden voyage might be next weekend at Cumberland.. we're planning on spending 3 days on the boat. I have a solid hub 29Mirage prop I'll start off with.. might also bring along a couple of other wheels to try.

Good luck! I'm betting that overall, you will like a Bravo 1 better than the Mirage. My 24 was all over the road with a Mirage+. It settled right down with a Bravo.

Another good option to try with the Super 24 is a Rev4. It should be very close in rpm to the Bravo 1 and you may find it works even better then the Bravo.

Before all the work, the Revolution 4 was by far my favorite prop on the boat.. was a couple mph slower than my Mirage plus, but the improved handling (and attutide off waves) more than made up for it. Too bad they only go up to 25" pitch..

The boat always handled best for me with a Mirage(not +).... but it only ran early 80's back then.... it developed terrible bow steer slowing down with the Bravo prop.... good luck & be careful!
