Postby hillbilly airboat » Sun Aug 21, 2016 10:20 pm

I am looking for a the R series Sensenich 2 blade prop, I have the I beam Sensenich and it seems to be to much prop, I have the 290 HP Crate engine it does pretty good but Sensenich guys say the R series 2 blade will do awesome

It sounds as if he has "S" blades on it now and is looking to obtain "R" blades.
The "S" are 16 inches wide and that is a lot of blade for a 290hp engine to spin.

H-B if you post a little more info you may get some feedback or someone interested in a trade.
The classified section has an area for both props being sold and items to trade.

I'm running a stock Efi 5.3 and 2.37 rotator turning a 81.5" 2-blade R and I'm very happy with my performance

:shock: Be careful there, my A/C friend . . .
you're starting to sound like you're running a water pumper. :lol:

For whatever reason . . . if you are seriously weighing that information,
it is worth noting at the same time that Dibbs7 is running an eight foot wide beam. :)

5000 wot @17* cruise in deep water is 3000-3400 depending on weight I have at the time..
This seems to be a happy middle ground for my setup but I have run it 4600 wot @20* 2600-3000 it's a lil more sporty at 17* though..
and yes 8' beam makes a world of difference I had a 220 gpu on a 12x7 then on the 14x8 with the same rigging and same old 220 it was night a day difference

I run a 5.3 carbed with 2:1 and turn 81.5" 2 blade R at 5100 just past mark 1. Cruises at 3200 deep-water loaded for redfishing with 3 adults. Have well over 400hrs between 2 boats. I have always had goodluck dealing with Sensenich.

Pushes my 14'x7-6 alumitec fairly well.
