    Yes, I've got 2 of them. They are more of a "Hydromotive style" blade than a pure clever. One works really well and the other I'll be running at Monster Bash, I tried it labor day but the combination of the heat and the amount of weight I was hauling around that weekend didnt allow it to perform well.

    What pitch did you go with? I have a bravo 1 32p labbed 4 blade now, but wanted to try a 30p
    when switching to a 5 blade, do you drop a pitch size, or get a 30p ?

    It depends what you are starting with. Bravo 1's are a little smaller than advertised, starting with a 32 you are at 30 1/2 to 31 true pitch. Labbing removes material and blade area so even if a little "cup" was added, you are in that general area. Cutting Edge props act slightly larger than advertised due to their additional "cup" so Bravo 1 and CE are not exactly the same as advertised. In an apples to apples comparison of the same brand, same pitch, same blade style you would normally drop a number of pitch for an additional blade (going 4 blade to 5 blade). CE has two different blade styes available, the Bravo style round ear and the Hydromotive style semi clever. With the round ear I'd go down at least a full pitch going from one on their 4 blades to one of their 5 blades. On the Hydromotive style, its less than half a pitch difference compared to one of their 4 blades due to less blade area.

    I have a CE 29p 4 blade with extra cup, a 32P 4 blade and a 32p 5 blade hydro style. I've found that my boat likes the diffuser removed, added cup and a diameter of 15 1/4" or less.
