Congrats on the Nova, they're great boats! I had a 26' with a single big block and the change from 3 blade to a 4 blade Merc prop made a huge improvement. I may have lost a little top end, but getting on plane and the midrange were much better. I was just running a standard Merc Bravo prop. Others can chime in, but I'd at least start there. Good luck.

We can offer some test props.
I like the 24 4-SPEED as a all around option.
