Iv got a 160hp 0-320 75089 Pistons,
I ran a 70" cypress for awhile. Good push lots of snap.
I now run a 70" signature. Lots more push less snap.
Night and day for running ground.
I use the cypress blades as backups now.

I had a 72 and it was such a difference everyone who seen it go would always say it was an impressive boat but I know from going to the ngq from the water walker it all was the prop I went from being able to run dry with 1 passenger to being able to run dry with 4 people just about anywhere. Best prop I ever had.

Yeah forget all of that it is great but the NGQ is far past the rest it was amazing how much of a difference it made on my boat.

You posted a picture of your 72 inch signature series prop hub, that you were supposedly spinning at 2850, pitched well past 10 degrees at the tip and you're telling me you could only run ground with one passenger?!?! It requires well over 300 horsepower to spin a sig with than much pitch that fast, and I know that your ground power with high compression pistons "with the tops cut off to lower compression" had that much. If you could only run dry with two people, no NGQ in the world would help your cause.
