Thats sounds real good to me:)devil
Those labbed props love to find rocks, be careful. Also, curious to see what it does at mid range cruising. Labbed props I have had in the past helped top end, but hurt mid range cruising.

That is not bad at all for todays prices over all, Like anything over time things just need to go up to keep up.;)
My guess is on the low end. 200rpm/2mph. Let us know.

I agree, I've taken my prop back there so many times, I don't even know what fuggin pitch it is these days.

With the tuned prop and a pair of Lightnings, I gained about 5mph though, CHEAP speed for sure. :)
I was thinking about it, but this was all I needed to get me on the bandwagon... who's the go-to in Havasu?

you can ship your prop to bronson hill and he will ship it back (on your dime) about 8 day turn around

cheapest mod out there!! Hell, a pair of water jacketed headers run 3k and get about the same results.
Did you take any "before" data with a GPS? How close were you to the rev limiter with the old prop? Hill should have asked those questions before starting. Only way to get a true baseline is to have 2 props, stock and blueprinted, run on the same day. Weather and weight will change your performance. 2MPH for $250 is a good deal, but it could also change your low to mid range. Not necessarily for the better. I don't know where you keep your boat, but you may want to invest in a prop lock. That thing is now worth 7-9 hundred bucks. Enjoy

yes i was asked all the above questions i was only turing 4400 rpm and my limit is 4800 so im good there. i have all my data from when i ran my boat with the stock prop and i will compare it to my new numbers next week:D prop lock will be purchaced tomorrow at the bass pro shops. you are the 3rd person to comment on the mid range so we will see what happens
