hey norman i thought you would like that prop set up, i wanted to do a three blade on my wifes boat but can only clear a 68" prop so i went with a 4 blade 68" bowtie saber and love it, quiter and great push, pitched at 6 and 8 degrees turning 3100 on motor, need to add some more pitch this weekend and see if it likes the bottle :twisted: :twisted:

I wanted to try the 3 blade saber over a year ago on my 200 and was told by A well know guy that is on here with the name of something like the airboat man that the 3 blade saber wouldn't work and I asked about a 4 blade them he told me i couldn't run a 4 blade then he advised me to my ngh which performs great but I don't like because of the winglets... Guess I should have stuck with what I wanted and got that 3 blade saber...

I have a 68" Cypress punching my upstack 200. I love my prop. Although curiosity is killing me and I really want to try a 5 blade saber so so so bad. Lol...

I run a 5 blade saber on mine and love it. I can't tell you much on hill running its a race boat but it pushes strong out of the hole.
