    295 Pro Elite Prop recommendations

    Just bought my first Stratos, a 1999 295 Pro Elite with a 2012 Etec 200HP. Its not the H.O. Etec. Boat has a 8" Jack plate. Prop that came on the boat is not in bad shape, but I've never heard of it before. Turning Point Express Propellers 14-1/423.

    I haven't ran the boat wide open yet so I have no idea if its any good. But since I am in the garage tinkering with the boat I thought I throw this up and see what people have to say in regards to prop selection.

    Thanks

    should be able to turn a 25 or 26 prop likely 23 seems too low of pitch need to see what top rpms are, might hit rev limiter? how is hole shot. i run a big 24p 4 blade due to talons and had a 26p 3 blade on it before talons. i have a slightly bigger boat but motor likely close. not sure what the gear ratio is on a non ho so that might be the diff?

    Thanks Mactlman. I have only driven the boat for 5 min to make sure the engine ran. So its premature of me to ask the prop question. Just dam excited about the boat I guess! I plan to add poles as well. Anyway Thanks for the starting point. I get my hands on a 25 and a 26 and see what the rpms are.

    Cheers

    poles will likely change everything so I would wait until it all is done mostly if doing it this season. marks propeller will also be a good place to call after you get poles and some good info on rpms and such. i put on two talons and i went to a bravo 1 on his advice and boat was perfect.
