    New results..3 blade Vs. 4 blade

    Wooohooo..82.7 with 2 bars of fuel, 80 degrees alt, 72 degree water, sea level, 15.5 - 16 #'s of boost @ 8550... Funny thing, I've been a huge fan of my three blade (whatever the pitch these days) but I was talked into a change(Thanks Jim) so I installed a 15/22 4 blade and picked up 2.7 MPH and I think my holeshot got better??? It feels like I finally nailed my set-up.


    Out of the box 15/22 took me to Right to 8550 with a 80MM ring, I'm very impressed with the 4 blade!!

    this is interesting !! so you got 82.7 with the 3 blade ?? then + 2.7mph with the 4 blade ???

    or it was 82.7 with the 4 blade and 80 with the 3 blade ??

    Also what pitch the 3 blade ?? and how is the accelaration between them ?

    With the 3 blade(13/21) I couldn't turn more than 80.0 @ 8600RPM with 16 pounds of boost..The acceleration was better with the 4 blade.. the only time the 3 blade shined was in the first 200 feet, after that it fell on it's face.

    I was at or very close to my top speed top within 660 feet.. I was in a pretty tight canal, I could have gotten more but I was pissen people off shooting no wake zones at 80+
