Hi Guys I have a 1996 zx 180 with a mercury xr4 150 and 6 in manual jack plate. I currently have a OMC shooter prop on this boat 4 blade 25 pitch and it turns it 4800 rpms at 52 mph. I recently purchased a tempest 23p and it did not fit due to a hub size difference I have the small gear case. What prop do you guys recommend for this boat and the small gear case?

The right prop is a worked lazer II. Get hold of Steve at Fork and let him fix you up. Lazer is a turd out of the box but it can be made to run pretty good.
