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.

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

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
