Deano, if you were gonna put a lumber prop on one of them about what do you think would work?

I just bought a 68" whirlwind super snapper to put on mine. I only bought the 68 because I plan to upgrade to a 360 soon and wanted enough prop for it. If it is too much Patti at Whirlwind told me she could cut it down to 66 without much issues. I have a 66 4blade warp on it now and it doesn't like running much dry. Had a 66x32 stick prop on it and it ran great. I have been told a 66" h would be great on it also. I have also heard the 66 signature series is a good one too.

Good luck. What kind of hull is yours on?

Im more concerned about bottom end than speed. You get the speed with the warps.

Olf, It's been a long time ago but I think it was a 68x32 that he had before it was replaced with the Cypress.
Prior to that I think it was like a 60x38, not sure, but it wasn't quite enough.
The 68x32 was much better, but maybe a little big. With the Cypress it was like having a different engine.
Very similar to when I took off the woddie and put Signatures on my Caddy.
Sorry, I know that wasn't much help, don't remember as much as I used to.

There just isn't any denying the adjustability of a composite.
