    Anyone have a 15 x 17 LH laying around? Long hub preferably.

    Reduce pitch 2" should raise rpms by 400 to where they should be.Way better hole shot.Dont reduce diameter AND pitch.

    Prop Question (another)-gctid398799

    I have a 2150 Cierra Sunbridge w a fresh 5.7 and V/P 280 outdrive. Current prop size is a SS 15" x 19 pitch. It's fine with 2 people and no load - up to 44 mph @ 4300 rpm.

    With a load, 3-4 people, full on fuel and other cargo, it struggles to get out of the hole as you may suspect. I don't want to stress the motor like that so I have stopped taking it to the lake till I get a more fitting prop.

    If I go to an aluminum 15" x 17 or 15 pitch I know it will get outta the hole faster but what will it do to the top end?

    What about a 14.8" 17 or 15 pitch?

    And then a 14" x 17 or 15 pitch?

    My goal is to pop out of the hole a lot better. I understand that I may increase the rpm and get close to the 44 mph but maybe at a higher rpm like 4600 - 4800 but with which prop?

    And do you have one for sale?
