Default 28 labbed bravo 1

I have 28 labbed bravo 1's on my A/T, and I am going to try 30 non labbed this weekend. What are my 28's worth and what should I pay for the 30's.
Or who needs 28 labbed and who has 30 labbed?
Thanks Lee.

I run labbed 28s on my 41 Velocity spinning the motors to 5500 rpm. I tried non labbed 30s and could only turn them to 4800. Merc did the lab work on the 28s.

I could be interested. I have stock 28s on my AT now. Who labbed them, and are they thinned, or just pitch trued? Polished or Satin?

Not sure who labbed, they are thinned with satin finish.
The reason for moving up is, I am on the rev limiters, and have more throttle.
I also have a rough time getting on plane when it is heavt chop.
When it is calm water it takes forever to plane and about 4000 rpm.
I am showing about a 22% prop slip.
Should I move to 30's or go with 5 blade's?
Comfortable cruise is about 4400 rpm. is that to high for cruising?
Thanks, Lee.

If you are slipping with a 4 blade then you will have to go to a 5 blade.
Keep in mind though.
How much are you slipping - my boat won't come on plane untill you rev it up.
I usually just run it up to about 5000 RPM and the boat rockets onto plane.
The props don't blow out but they do slip a bit.
I have about 15 % slip though.
