Default Prop-RPM Question

I'm currently running Bravo1 26 pitch props on my boat. I think they are perfect for all around boating. I spin them at 5600 wot (yes the engines can handle that) and get 51 mph @3500 for the cruise.

I just picked up a set of 28 Bravo1's yesterday. I figure that they will be great for long trips (cruising) but I'm wondering what rpm I should be able to spin them at wot? Also, what speed should I see @ 3500?

Thanks in advance,
Craig

I did you a favor buddy!! It would have cost you way too much money for a prop shop to fabricate new hubs to fit on those needledick shafts of your 7.5 HP outboards!!

we can Lab these props for 200.00 each,let me know!
they will be surley better crusing props and mid range will be alot better,but I am sure they need labbed if you want to turn more rpm's.As they will be somewhat on the low side,if you can turn 5,600
