Default Testing Some Props

Anyone have a 22p Bravo 1, or a 22p Hydromotive, or a 24p Hydromotive they would be willing to let me try out? I'm in the Philadelphia area. Thanks

Thanks Brian, Tried Jim's 24 and I could only spin it to 4200-4400rpm's. I'm good to 5000 with my 454 Mag. I put on my 23p Mirage and it put me right at my 5000rpm and boat ran 63.4GPS and I ran out of room. I think there is more there. That was with 3/4 tank of fuel. Also were you towing up Rt. 55 on sunday. I think I was behind you but you got off at Rt. 40 before I could catch up.

Didn't get out on the river at all this year. Ran around down the Jersey Shore.

I have a hydromotive turbo 24 3 blade that I am selling for $250 it was faster than my 23 mirage same rpm and it was 200 rpm higher than my 25 mirage speed was wise it was as fast as my 25 mirage even when I went to bigger power 600hp the 25 ran at 5600 at 75 to 76 the 24 was 5800 same speed. you must have a 454 365hp mag from the late 80s early 90s just before the 502 390hp came out. pm me if your interested. art
