Postby Southernoutlaw » Wed Jun 20, 2012 2:13 pm

I am building a 11'6" aluminum step hull one seater with a lyconental and im probably going with a ngh or q because I want it to have good push as well as response but I would like some opions on which prop I should use

Tell us a little more about the motor? What diameter would you prefer if there are any limitations

if you can get at least 200HP out of that motor I would go with the NGH it will give you what your looking for

two blade,70'' or 72'' great all around performance or you can go with a 5 blade saber depending on how HP you will have,I am going to build a 4 banger with turbo and might go with the saber

If you ever want to try a whirlwind the narrow blade in either a 70" or 72" 2 blade would be pretty wicked or if your feeling frisky the razors a sharp performing propeller with some serious snap and top end!

Must be some top secret classified stuff noones ever tried before. Hell I would go with a 70" 6 blade saber or razor prop plenty of low end and runs out well
