Going to be spinning a 23p clever prop, should hopefully push it well.
What you think?

Cleaver props lifts the stern . You will need a prop that lifts the bow.

my ring is only small compared to yours but i find it handles better with an ally prop than with a laser 2, my mate with a r21 and a yam 200hpdi likes his laser 2 though. will a chopper prop lift the bow?

Iíve got a selection of ally props 19'' 21'' 23'' if you want to try them before you go spending lots of money on a piece of shiny spinning tin.
