I average at least 6 sets per boat. I never have found that perfect prop for any boat. Always compromises. Water conditions will call for different props as well.

Depends on the hull and setup. My boat runs great with a 28P bravo 1 right out of the box.

I've tried a Mirage + and Hydromotive but the bravo 1 is the best for me.

tested 6-7 sets...ended up owning 4 sets (one set was best for WOT while everything else suffered. Another was good at mid-range...the other 2 could/should have been sold but kept as spares)
