I would call Brett.He will send you in the right direction.Depending on your x dimension that will make a big difference whether you should go with a 3 blade or 4 blade.Seems to me Checkmate was using some Hydromotive 4 blades with some sucess.

I have hydromotive 3 blade 24 pitch , that came off a checkmate like yours and ran very well 170.00 shipped.
3 blade well run faster than a 4 blade, but a 4 blade will come out off the hole faster, i might even trade props with you .we could work it out . hyd is stern lift prop, a bravo is bow lifter

I would do the above and call bblades any way to discuss it.
A Mercury Rev4 might do the trick.
He IS the prop man!!

I would call Brett at BBlades also. I would think that you have a 60-62mph boat with the right prop. My guess would be a 22 or 24 Bravo 4 blade. Maybe a REV4.

Actually i went with a hydromotive. I ordered a quad4 x 22p so we'll see how that works out. should work better all around then the mirage plus 25p

Hydromotive will also let you(at least they used) exchange it once within like 14 days if you need a different pitch.

yes they will it's only $20 to exchange it and you have 30 days and if you dont want another they refund 90% at that point. I think the hdro prop should help alot?
