Bass Boat G2 250 h.o Best Prop

I got 24 hours on my new G2. Switch from Mercury. 

 

It came with a 26P RX4. The numbers I'm getting are very different then what I ran on my Pro XS. Speed is very similar but at different RPM. at 5400RPM with the G2 I'm at 77 while with the Fury 26P to hit 77 I'm at 5950. while fully loaded.

 

Any recommandation on props for this? Raker H.O?

Personally I would have started with the Raker HO, it's a standard bass boat prop. The bow will lift more and you will get more speed in most cases. Your RPMs are a two low.  Ive used both props, I think a 26inch RAKER would raise your RPMS and likely your speed.

If the gear ratios are different, you will have different results.

 

Propping is a trial and error situation. Some boats may perform better with an RX4 and other with a Raker HO. Hopefully you work with a dealer who is either very familiar with your setup and boat brand, or one that loans you various props to try out.

 

Enjoy your engine, it should be quite an improvement when taking off with a tournament load onboard.
