I don't think I've ever seen one with that small of a diameter for a #6. Pitches that low are uncommon too. I saw a pair of 16" x 32" for #6's on ebay not too long ago.

Just out of curiosity, what is it going on? Unless you are running a really tall gear set, a 15x26 is a prop that could practically absorb about 500 hp. #6 drives usually need a bigger diameter to allow higher drive heights.

you can get them, there are plenty of people running them down here just none for sale anywhere as they are pretty rare

it is for a ski race boat, basically a 21ft mono hull, 1000hp twin turbo big block chev,

we currently run a 15x26 3 blade which is great for the slower rough water races but no much chop in the smooth river races where the speeds are up and it revs a little hard.

I just saw an ad today for Five Axis Industries out of Seattle that is making forged props with CNC EDM hubs and splines. That means they can make just about any configuration you'd want.

Have you looked into having a set cut down? You could start with a 17x26 or something. Have you tried Scott at speed n custom marine? I bought a pair from him that weren't quite matched, but he sent them to a shop he uses, and had them CNC matched.

17x26 would be perfect, is that more of a common size over there? Getting it cut down is easy

Have you got scotts details?
