I run a 2014 Nitro Z8 with a Mercury Optimax 200 with a Mercury Tempest Plus 25p.
I was really lucky to meet with one of the Mercury Prop Product Development Managers to help me identify what my best options were based on current boat performance numbers (i.e. WOT RPM and Top Speed). Now its time to test them out and see which one gives me the best performance.
The recommendation is going to a 23p. My choices are a Tempest Plus or waiting for the Fury to be released in a 23p.
My real dilemma is three blade or four blade. My Nitro has a 68 gallon fuel tank and 40 gallons of livewell. So, full boat and tournament load, the hole shot is a little slow.
