Question prop selection

Tried a 26 P Chopper today on my P18 with a 2.5 Merc and it went very well. Is this the best prop for thie set up or can anybody reccommend something better. I have a trophy and a laser 23 that I have still to try, I only borrowed the chopper.

Thanks

I think I tried nearly every prop made on my p18 and the best handling and fastest was a 24 yam drag prop.

24 Yam Drag

thanks will do but just to confirm you reckon the 24 is best suited before I go and order the wrong one?

Thanks Donski

I had a 24 and 26, the 24 was the best allround prop, hardly any steering torque and 4mph faster than a chopper.

I'll try and get in touch with the guy I sold it to, I'm sure he said it was no good on his batboat so he may sell it.
