There's a reason u don't see 4 blade H, Specially on a 4 banger, try a NGH. If u would like I would be happy to meet up at the river to try it. I sent my Q down the road after I tried the NGH .

Hows that 3 blade 72" prop running! How does it run dry and top in,are you always in the gas at cruising speed! I what a prop that is has good snap and good cruising speed. With that 3 blade are you burning the same amount gas?

I would do a 68" 5 blade whirl wind razor I know some who has one on his 200 and he loves it and said he wouldn't trade it for nothing. And he had sabers before the razors . The razors are cheaper lighter stronger and flex less
