Default How many blades on your prop?

What style prop do you run? I have 4 blades for all around good, and 3 blades for top speed.

I am running a 28 lab Bravo and a 30 lab Bravo, but I think I would run faster with a 29 mirage+ 3 blade.

I PRESENTLY RUN A 32 PITCH BRAVO 4 BLADE-I TRIED A HYDROMOTIVE 5 BLADE WAS FAST BUT FELT A LITTLE LOOSE GAVE ME A LITTLE TOO MUCH STERN LIFT AT HIGH SPEEDS (90 OR ABOVE) A LITTLE LONGER TO COME ON PLANE BECAUSE THE 5 BLADE DOESNT SLIP BITES REAL HARD..OVERALL I LIKE THE 4 BLADE OVERALL..26 FT CAT..

My stepped 29 Fountain seems to like its 4-blade Hydromotive. Didn't like the 3-blade Mirage I tried at all (very hard to get on plane).
