Totally depends on what boat you have.

There are loads of P20 owners on here and people who used to have them so you will get good advice here.
I would have thought a 21p laser II would run well.

Agree with mr Rob, try a laser II as they are an easy going prop but slightly slower top end. or you could try a 4 blader

Et lightning

I would recommend a 22" small hub lazer 11 which has a smaller balde diameter than the 21" large hub Lazer 11 and therefore will give better handling on a phantom 20.

Or if you can get hold of one try a ET Lightning again a great alround prop from hole shot to top end, with great handling.

The ET will give you similar speed to a chopper but with none of the handling issues.

You will need to get both props worked to suit the boat.

Yup, I run a 22 laser 2 on my P20 with a 200 and it works really well. Don't get a large hub (odd numbers 21, 23 etc.).

Hi! I have one question!

You are talking about to use a small hub prop on a V6 gearcase , right?

Does it need any modification or can i put the prop on it without problems?
Why a small hub? I ask because my bro has a 225 yammi , and he can also use the small hub props?

Thanks in advance for your help!!

Best regards!
Andi
