Default 5-blade Hydromotive Props

Anyone tried the new Hydro Intimidator P-5 props? How do they compare to the Bravo-1?

Jay at Spectre Powerboats has tested both on a few of his boats.
Contact him and he will tell you his results.

Yes I have tested the P-5. The prop was fast , well made and delivered excellent lateral stability. The B-1 had a higher top speed. Every rig is different So give them a shot. If you get a chance try the Herring 5 blade and B-1 labbed.

Jackson's Fountain/Scism cat had the Hydro Intimidator 5-blades on it. He said that Fountain and Dave Wood had tried a bunch of props on the cat and liked the Intimidator 5blade very much. He is suspicious of just how many they have truly tried since his hull is one of the few with Bravos that have been built (most are running sixes).

He said as far as his experience with them, they do come out of the hole nicely and run well, but he has not run anything different yet.

Monday he did find some trash in the lake and changed the pitch on one blade each prop. He was not particularly happy.
