If you want to go to a carbon fiber prop, its hard to beat a Sensinich 72" or 74" "Q"

Its gonna be kinda pricey unless you find a used one.

Good Luck!

I was running a 72 whisper tip narrow and it did really good on my 220. I went to a 520 conversion and thought I was going to have to sale or trade from thinking it wasn't going to be enough prop but I got it pitched about half way and my boat will go anywhere. This is the only carbon fiber prop I've ran so have no input on the others but this one gets the job done for me. Maybe try a water walker on my next prop and compare the two. Only reason I say water walker now is because they got good people running it down here now.

My fathers boat has been running a 70" powershift/water walker on his, a 10 1/2' sled and it pushes really well. When he had to get some damage repaired we put my sensenich 70" 3 blade h series on it and I am trying to figure out how to get it back off. He is in love with the smoothness and push the h series has and the fuel economy to boot.

Thanks for input on props I would like to upgrade to a carbon fiber if it will help me.Boat does ok cruising will run a little ground would like it to smoke ground and still cruise well. Bottoms tach out 2950 wot Does length and pitch sound about normal 72x30 x10.5'' wide Should I get one of those 72'' carbon fiber with adjustable pitch? AND Dial it in like I like it if there is such a thing. I THINK the gov't is reading this .
