Need Prop Recommendation for Triton 215X
I have a 2007 Triton 215X walleye rig (big hull, like a bass boat on steroids) with a 250 ProXS. Numbers on the props I have tried follow:

25p High Five: 61mph at 5800rpms...great overall handling

23p Tempest Plus: 62mph at 6100rpms...not so great handling and was over revving a bit

23p Rev 4: 61mph at 5500rpms...terrible, could barely get out of the hole

21p Rev 4: 60mph at 5800rpms...STILL boggy on hole shot and too difficult to get rpms up, needed to really run motor high

Right now I have settled on the High Five since it gives great handling and doesn't give up much on top end compared to the others I have tried. However, I'm not satisfied...I want to get a bit more on top end without sacrificing ride quality too much.

What else can I try? I've been hearing about the Bravo 1's modified with dual PVS vent holes???

Need some quick advice as I will be on vacation next week and want to place an order for something. Thanks!

Bravo 1's can be vented. I'm not sure what the dual part is. We vent them here up to 1.25" holes.

Try removing the PVS plugs on the Rev 4 for better hole shot.

The PVS plugs were removed...stil very boggy holesho with the Rev 4 props.

Regarding the dual PVS on the Bravo's, folks are having 8 PVS holes drilled in these props for optimum flexibility and tuning capabilities. Supposed to be working real well.

I just ordered a 24p Bravo 1 and I am going to try it on my rig.

We drill up to 1.25" holes in B1's. I can't believe a guy would need more. Also, getting too close to on coming blade with the hole defeats its purpose because air can't get to the blade in time. It's nice to do it in steps to see the benefits change.
