Hi everyone

I have a 2012 185BR with the 220HP 4.3 MPI with a 1.62 drive ratio Alpha 1 leg.

Anyone out there running a High Five prop for waterski hole shot improvement on the same boat?

I believe this is the way to go, my question is whether to go 19" or 17" pitch?

The engine is good and will produce 5000RPM with a 4 blade stainless 19P, I'm not too concerned about potential over revving as reasonable throttle management will prevent that.

I'm just trying to ensure it won't be screaming it's head off once we're out of the hole and skiing at 35 MPH also. So we're wanting to achieve great holeshot and reasonable cruise performance for skiing.

Any info would be much appreciated.

Thanks

I have a 19" and a 21".
I prefer to run the 21".
You have more hp than me so I would assume the 21" would be your best choice.

Hey Danny
Thanks for that
Any chance I could try your 19" to get a measure on it?
