It's about getting the most out of your investment. My boat will only run 55MPH but I tested enough props and jackplate positions to know I am maxed out.

Would you drive your truck around with a vacuum leak making it burn more fuel with less performance? Of course not. Same principle.

No but I also don't drive my truck around with the pedal to the floor either.......not really the same principal. I was just teasing with the fellar. If he is like Ricky Bobby and just wants to go fast, then have fun and do it. \:\)

Go back with the 3 blade. Hole shot will be slower, but will gain back the top end. That's just the nature of the beast..

Go over to BassBoatCentral.com and check into it. There are a lot of sharp Bullet guys there. Probably even someone with the same set up that has tried everything out there prop/set up wise.

Just to clarify, his original prop was a 4 blade also instead of a 3 like I had originally thought. He went from a 25p 4 blade to a 26p 4 blade. He ran it yesturday after moving the jp up and he got quiet a bit of top end back(73 mph) but is still blowing out pretty bad on takeoff. He is also throwing a tail about as tall as the cowl on the motor. I will check that website out guys. Thanks for that.

Sounds like he has too much prop now, as raising the motor to help top end will likely hurt his holeshot and cause blowout!

The most important question is rpms. How many is he turning with his current set up at WOT?

Opti or Pro max merc n does it have low water? If it does keep jacking. Brand of prop makes as much difference as pitch,they all have there own personality no 2 are alike.
