Default 25 Rage Best Prop

setup - 07 Closed Bow Rage/ 496HO/
i'm running 75mph pretty consistantly with the standard prop that came with the boat (26 mirage i believe). i'm wondering if anyone has a recomendation for prop upgrade. i'm curious if a 28 lab'd prop would get me a couple more mph without compromising holeshot too much... any recomendations on a prop upgrade?

you could prob spin a merc labbed B1 28 then.

i have a stock bravo 28 you could try if you want.

i can spin my stock 28 to 5200 and that is right at 80.

and i can spin a merc labbed 30 to 5300 which was 82

05R1 is right on track.

I would try his 28, but am guessing it is going to be a bit too much prop for you. A merc lab 28 would spin aproximately the same rpm as the 26 you have now, with giving you a couple of mph everywhere.
