A running a 2004 Triton TR22 with a Opti 225

Had a tempest 25 (not worked) run at 63-64
Had a trophy + (not worked) run at 61-62
Have a trophy (original) runs 56-58 - NOT GOOD

I've been told to spend the extra 200 and get a worked 25 tempest and the boat would run high 60's and could touch 70.

Any return giys out there for any info for me?

A prop worked for your boat will always be better than an unworked prop. Talk with a respected prop shop in your area... they should know what will work on your boat for a baseline, and then work it for its maximum efficiency.

Live in Florida now but I've stalked with steves prop shop. I hear nothing but good things about them. Prolly just gonna let him fix one up and ship it to me. Says he does enough to make it perfect the first time. Just hate spending 700 on a prop lol

Josh is actually the one @ Steves Prop Shop that will rework your prop and he does awesome work. He knows what he is doing.
He did a fantastic job on my Fury.

You have a big boat and a small motor, don't expect a miracle. Are your rpms where they are supposed to be?

I am running a 01 tr22 with them same motor and 25 tempest. Before I wacked my prop I was running 67mph. Now I'm at 62. Have looked on BBC and seen post of same boats running low 70 with hydraulic jack plates. Until I see it in person I will call it BS. We have big heavy boats. Anything over 65 I'm happy. Bought it for comfort and room not speed.

I have owned a TR22 with a Yam 300 and it is a fast hull for its size. I would expect your boat to see 68-70 with one person light load with the 225 Merc. A Tempest is a good prop especially after it has been worked. It will run as good as the Fury possibly better once worked.

The only advantage of the Fury is that it is made from a harder SS alloy that allows it to be made with thinner blades while not flexing.

I saw a brand new Merc prop out of the box that was supposed to be 25" pitch that had two blades at 25" and one at almost 27" pitch. It was cast that way. When you have a prop "worked", the first thing the prop guy does is the make sure all blades are the same pitch. A good prop guy can build in more bow lift or stern lift depending on what you need.

Your TR22 has a lot of boat out front so your prop needs to have a good amount of bow lift to carry the load. A 225 is not a "small motor" by the way. You just need to make sure it is healthy with good plugs, coils, and compression across all six cylinders.

blew the motor a couple weeks ago. should have the new power head in and installed and back on the water within the next week or so. new plugs, cleaned/adjusted injectors, new oil pump, serviced lower unit, and a couple other tweaks will be made. figured it was time to put the prop on there for maximum performance. ive certainly enjoyed the boat and have put a ton of hours on it in the 3 years ive owned it. I have always heard that these tritons will fly and after the break in thats what i want it to do!

The Fury props are made w/ lighter material (magn), it will increase your rpm's, w/ same pitch, as stated above, be sure the rpm's are where they're suppose to be, (prolly 5,600-5,800). Steve's shop does great work.

Steve set me up with a jack plate and prop (not blueprinted) several years ago on my TR22. I'm running 72-75 with a 250 HPDI. I'd expect 65-68 with your motor. But they are the experts... They'll be able to tell you what to expect out of it realistically. They do great work and have been very upfront and honest any time I've dealt with them.
