Yes, I bought one of the Magic decks from LBYS...blah blah blah I know how some of you feel about the whole deal... I've read a few guys asking what prop to run with a 496HO, but I set mine up with a 525 and was wondering what prop I should put on there. Probably running with 6-7 peeps on the boat most of the time. Any opinions, Thanks.

26 b1 or..... I would try a Maximus 5 blade 24 or 26. It really helps my deck boat. I would also recommend trying a 24 for the summer months with a heavy load. Or try a hydromotive p5x to lift the bow

Good luck!

Thanks guys. I did PM Outcoled. I water tested it with a 28 Bravo1 the other day--took way too long to get on plane. I'm just looking for the best "all around" fit. We don't use the boat from Nov thru May so a summer prop will suit me fine. Thanks again.

Hey, I got the PM, but for some reason I couldn't respond from my phone. Sorry about that. I run a 26 on my boat and its fine for a basic load. With 6-7 peoplen gear, ice chests, etc, you may want to try a 24 so you could get on plane a little easier.

if you have a standard 26p you can go with a lab 28 run the boat with it and get all the specs, rpm at what speed , weight etc the have the 28 lab it worked great for me just tell the tech's what you want at what rpm. I used Bronson.
