I did have a 25 laser 2 but i melted the rubber and threw the prop so now ive got a 24 chopper but i havent tried it yet, I would say u need to borrow a 23 pitch prop to see although engine height and trim takes a big roll

Prob because lasers are known to be easy going and quite forgiving.
choppers although slightly faster top end are nasty when backing off and tend to try and throw you out the boat.

send it down to prop revolutions in poole, they will rebush it for you i thinks its only about 30 quid and it wont have the rubber in again so you can use it and not destroy it this time

I think mine was £65 to rebush. However as you've allready removed the old bush it may be cheaper
