I switched from 23P Mirage 3-blades to the 24P Bravo 4-blades and WOW what a difference it made!!! Holeshot and mid-range acceleration has been drasticly improved, however lost a couple on the top, but how often am I up there?? I'll take the holeshot and acceleration any day. And on top of that, my cruising speed went up 4-6 MPH!

I guess it depends on which drive I'm using at the time. The Bravo uses a 4 blade and the BlackHawk uses 2 3 baldes.

Same here. Can you say H-O-L-E-S-H-O-T?

Use to be 3, but due to a cut back in funding I'm down to 2.
