Default Name that Prop!!

Does anyone know the particulars on this prop?
Who made it and what would be expected for performance. Seller claims it is by Merc. P/N HC-CL24R, but I've never seen anything like it and the part number didn't register. I looking for a four blade, to try on my Baja 240.

That sounds like a Hydromotive number. Is it stamped inside, not on the outside of the hub? It'd be a 24-pitch Quad 4 most likely.

That prop will produce alot of stern lift and (unless your drive is real deep) may slip or blow out on planeing. Can't hurt to try it, but I don't know if it will be the ideal prop for you. Just make sure the deal is contingent on you testing the prop.

Thanks for all the help guys. I wish I could demo for free, but the ebay seller might not go for that!
I'm running a Mirage 21P (std) now with a Mirage 23P (std) and a Mirage Plus 23P ready to test. I've experienced considerable slow plane times and bow rise and think that a four-blade is the way to go.
The 21P Mirage runs 5200 rpm at 72 mph (speedo, probably about 68 gps). Need to lower the rpm's a bit and not kill the hole shot. The prop I really want to try is a 24P Bravo 1. So if anyone has one collecting dust... drop me a line.
