He's gotta know what he needs or at least something close to what he needs before for anyone can help him. He should call BBlades and use the test program.

Friend of mine had a 79 scarab 300 with TRS's and 454 330's warmed up a bit to about 360hp. He ran Mirage + 23's, at WOT was low 60's at 4600 - 4700 rpm. All around performance was impressive, got on plane fast for 3-blades and cruised at about 40mph at 3000rpm.

Thanks for info, seems like a set of 23 mirage plus would work well and fit his budget.

I run a pair of hydromotive 26p 4 blade on my 84 scarab. The engines are making 565hp ea and the boat runs 74 at 4900 and cruising at 3000 it runs 51mph.

You might consider Labbing those props. It would reap better and smoother acceleration and most likely a mph or 2 or 3.

Unless you are a paying advertiser, you are not supposed to try to sell anything on this or any other forum. Trying to sell a object is considered a "pay for" option just like putting a add in the newspaper or paying a percentage to ebay when you sell a item. It actually costs money to list in the swap shop too.
This is to protect the paying advertiser like myself and all the other paying advertisers. And believe me, it is not cheap to advertise on these sites!

I'm not trying to pick a side here I just thought I'd explain the process.
