hi,

the prop adam used was a fairly heavily work laser 2 about a 23 pitch.

a trophy might be worth trying.

cheers john.

Silversurfer - 22 would be fine for general use but not for racing - not fast enough, you would need at least a 23!

Cheers for that guys. We are using Adams work Laser 23pitch at the moment. We are finding alot it is good in the corners but it needs more in the way of acceleration and speed to help get up and going!
Any more suggestions?

Really need to know the revs and speed to know what would be best, in addition something like a Raker would maybe be faster but that would also give more bowlift and the characteristics of the boat may prevent you from using a bow lifting prop. The long and the sort of it is try everything you can and you will build up a picture of the sort of prop you need for your particular boat and setup!
