I went from a 28 tempest to the 26 Fury. I couldnt believe the difference. Spun the exact same top end speed and exact same rpm as the 28 tempest but obviously due to the smaller pitch it accelerates much harder...... loves load too!
The Revolution is not made form X7. Only the Fury and Enertia.

Your right A.O. Razor.
I always thought the revolutions where x7 for some reason.
Regardless you really need to try everything you can get your hands on. Every boat and setup is different. When i set my race boat up i was told by the best in the business that i would need a ET Lightning. Ended up being the slowest and worst accelerating prop yet!
The fury works great for me..... it may or may not for you as with any other prop choices suggested.

The Rev is a great choice. Will pull 300 RPM less than a Mirage + in the same pitch. And usually faster on a boat over 23'
