3 blade whisper tip 2.0 78" would be best option from whirlwind would be smooth and powerful, or if your looking for a 2 blade the 79" whisper tip EX would be a close second to the 3 blade. Feel free to pm or call if you have any questions

I went from an 80" 2 blade H series to a 78" 3 blade Whispertip 2.0. The Whispertip pushes hard and my cruise is a lot better. The H series I believe is a good prop I just think I was turning it hard enough but I was afraid if I turned it harder my cruise would just go up too. Just my 2 cents but I have an 80" H series if you want to try it I'm looking to sell it.
