Default 39TG prop selection

Hey guys, need some input.
Looking to prop a 39 with 700s and XR drives. Some are saying to try Bravo 33s but speaking with someone else they recommended trying a set Maximus but I'm not sure what pitch. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

A 565 39 TG uses 32 Bravo's.https://www.performanceboatcenter.co...=xAllInventory
Most likely you would need at least 34's and probably 36's.I would say 5 blades in 33-34 range would be you best bet assuming 1.5 ratio drives.

I'm going to try a set of Bravo 34s first to see how that goes. I'm being told that the Maximus tear up the drives a lot quicker....

Using playing cards for props will tear up an xr when hooked to 700ís. Good luck. Be gentle on the throttles.

I'm betting the 34s are horrible. Run six blades spinning in. Diameter will depend on how much weight you have in the nose, excetera. Cabin. If it's a full cabin, I might consider pulling the padding out of the nose, and any other weight that's easy to remove. Otherwise, 6 blade will probably not work. Not sure who owns my old boat now, but it's the same set up, 600 turned up to 700s - on a light layup, 1/2 cabin with the high X dimension.

I did give my friend who owned the Finish Line boat at the timthe set of my 5 blade Maximus that were worked quite a bit. Carried the nose too much on my light boat, and worked well on his full cabin. Hope that helps!
