Prop Proposals People Please??!!!

I have a 1991 38 Fever with 496HO 425 hp engines. I would like to go as fast as possible. What pitch and brand of props will net the best out of the hole and top MPH results? I have Nose coned Bravo 1 drives with 1.5 ratio's. Any suggestions or experiences??

What props are you running now?

What is your WOT RPM and speed?

Throttleup, I the engines will go in next week, and the boat right now is in the shop. I am starting from scratch so I need all the advice I can get.

Just a guess, but I'd also say something in the 24p range.

I just bought a set of 1.36 to 1 ratio Bravo 1 drives. I am thinking a set of 26 Hydromotives will work with this ratio. Am I correct or should I stick with 24's or 28's?

Guessing your top end dialed in with best prop will be around 75.
