    I can't prop this boat !!!!!!

    I bought a 2006 192super pro. It's got a optimax 135 on it. It came with a laser 2 19 pitch prop. I'm hitting rev limit pretty easy. I tried a 21, hit rev limit. I tried a 23, hit rev limit. I tried a 24, hit rev limit. I tried a 26, no hole shot but good on rpm's and about 4 miles an hour faster. So I'm thinking a25 will be perfect. I tried it today and couldn't even plane out. I'm lost. I feel like I'm pretty good on motor height. What next?!

    Are you running all laser II props??? Have you tried a 23 P Tempest? You should NOT hit the limiter with a Known GOOD 23P Tempest.

    I talked to Mark yesterday, and I'm going with one of his 23 Razor', at least if its not just right I'm dealing with the man that can make it right.

    Great idea! A 23P prop should NOT set off your limiter on that 135

    I had a 02 SP 200 w/ a merc opti 200 & couldn't hit the limiter with a 25p Tempest, what 24p prop are you hitting the limiter?

    I have an 04 192 SP Running a 2010 200 Pro XS 25 Tempest + worked by Mark, Never hit limiter on it Might if I over trimmed it or raised motor too high I guess . I can't figure why you are getting a 135 on a 1535 lb boat too turn that high. I did hit limit when I tried a 24 tempest +. I have run 25 Trophy 26 Tempest + 25 and 24 Fury but this 25 Tempest I have now gets the best bow lift and best top end from my boat of all that I tried. 24 Fury came in 2nd.

    What is your mph? I have a 08 192 with 200 pro xs is running a 26 tempest and was at 70 mph by myself but with two people 65 is all I can get. But I still have lots of water pressure. I just put a 25 tempest on it to try it run 66 so. What or how is your set up?
