Default Anyone running a P5X prop on a 496HO?

Wondering if anyone is running a Hydromotive P5X prop on a single 4896HO setup and a 28+hull? Wanted to know how it performed over a Bravo 1 prop such as hole, mid and top speed? Also what pitch you runniing?

The results have not been strong enough to warrent putting the F1, Offsore Race boats in them. We have not seen the increases in cruiose speeds as we have seen on similar boats with bigger power. I think it is because the 496 HO does not have enough torque. The Bravo I and Hydro QIX have worked well on the 496 HO.

I tried one on my 28 PowerQuest ,and it was no differant than the 24 bravo that I was running. No increase of speed at any rpm,wide open was also the same. It was a 23 pitch..
