Do you have any input on how a 4 blade Bravo or Trophy may help or not help me?

typically, the bravo gives stern lift, where as a trophy can actually do both.
of those two props listed, i'd choose the trophy plus.

if your looking for overall lift,etc.


i'd still choose a tempest over both of them... but i'm curious to hear your results.

The Tempest Plus is a great prop. I ran a 23 on my 18' Ranger with a modded 175 Black Max and that prop did it all. Holeshot and the lift along with max RPMs. The only prop I ran that was faster was a 24" longed eared chopper. Only problem was it took forever to come out of the hole.

I am in the same position but with a bigger heavier boat. I thought the prop I bought would be the answer but I now think I should have tried a Tempest. Kind of wish I had kept the 23 and knocked it down and inch or 2. Playing with props can get expensive.

Chris, I ran several procrafts early and late models. First one was a 2001 and last one was a 05/ 06 200 super pro. Both had 10 inch jackplates and would run around 67 loaded with good 24 tempest . Looking at your prop test #s the 24 had lowest slip of the props . Fury slip #s are misleading. I would ask Steve about a 10 inch plate and work the 24 and that's probably going to put you around 67 or so loaded. Also know if you go from 6 inch to 10 inch plate steering cables might not be long enough

Thank you for that info. I’m currently running a 6” plate. The steering cable length is what I was worried about with going to a bigger plate.

I just removed my Talon today as well. I should retest a 24 Tempest.
