the numbers sound like the labbing should work out good, before I bought new ones I tried out a set of used 30's with some dings and they must have lost some pull, cuz I was getting more rpm compared to the new 30's I bought. I need the cup to remain in the prop for nose lift, and I am not sure if labbing will decrease that effect. probably just a conversation away with the right lab shop, i.e., lab blades, increase cup!!!C'mon spring!!!!

Hi!

Best speed Phantom 25 w/Promax 300 - Tempest 26 inch labbed prop at 6.100 rpms = 78 mph.

New boat this spring - Skater 28 w/twin 2.5's = 115 mph? Will keep the Phantom as a Fjord cruiser!

Cheers and all the best from Norway, Toffen G
