prop choice

Does anyone know woy sort of prop i should be thinking of running? my set up is as follows:
phantom 21 , xr2 , 6"set back jack plate , bow tank and its a tandem so not much weight! its not gonna be used for skiing mostly for racing and the occasional brighton run! The engine used to be ran on little petes marshan 21 and used to spin a lazer 23" tempest if that helps?

Solas Scorpian mate. I had a Laser 2 21p before and then went for the Scorpian 23p and found it to be extremely 'grippy' and improved my handling no end.

it was a 24" but been thinned and worked down to a 22.75" ran really well but bought a ET lightening so dont need it anymore £200 and its yours, spent more than that getting it right, not including buying the prop in first place
