    Alright, question, I was told the 26 Trophy plus has a tendency to sling blades, what replaces it to keep the same hole shot and top end? Thanks in advance .... Robert

    Raise motor an inch and try it.

    If you see improvement raise it another hlf inch.

    Most 20ft bullets run 3/4 to 1 3/4 above depending on prop.

    2013 21SS\2014 300XS L 1.3 DBR 1.75 gears 14"setback-1 1\13 above pad 32 promax-99.3 (interrupted by a 1\4 bolt hitting me above right eye.11-11-16 32 performer 1 13\16 above 66% fuel,me at 295lb and ballast on the other side she ran 100 MPH up-river.there is more there but it takes a gentle hand or it will get upset.The SS is not like other hulls when it blows out,the back-end will wiggle just a little speed drops and the nose falls,it doesnt jerk 1 way or the other it just goes from right to left until you get trimmed down and all the side to side has scrubbed of enough speed.I have had it happen at 75 and 99,its not as bad at 75.theirs more left,just have to be gentle to get it out.

    2002 21XDC
    2002 Mercury ProMax 225x
    Sport Master 1.87
    Prop- 26P ProMax w/ 4 PVS new prop (lost a blade on my 26P trophy plus)
    15" rapid jack jack plate
    .5" above pad

    My best run was 76 gps
    water pressure 20
    RPM's 6100

    The hole shot is horrible on this boat... the prop blows out or loses bite when the nose drops, and when the live well is full it takes forever to get on plane.
    Not sure if I need to lower my motor or raise it. ??????? Thinking about getting a B-Man foil but not sure if it would solve my problem.
    I don't really care about going faster than 80 but I would like to improve my hole shot!

    Any and all suggestions on my set up would be greatly appreciated!

    I'm no expert on Bullet set-up but after reading all the set-ups prior to yours, you're running your engine 1 1/2" to 2 " too low.

    1999 20XD, 2013 175 Pro XS, 12 inch set back, 25 Fury at 3 inches below pad. 5800 rpm, 70 to 72 hard loaded to fish in summer time. I run a 26 Fury in winter time, 5900 rpm, same engine height, 72 to 74 hard loaded. Funny how that works but true numbers. Very easy and fun to drive, fishes great. Takes rough water good, Kentucky Lake. Slow Bullet but a great set up for an Ol Man like me. Mostly keep it between 4000 to 4500 rpm, easy on gas that way. Love my Bullet but really love my little 2.5 Merc.

    2013 21 SS Bullet with 2013 Yamaha SHO

    topend: so far 87mph with 30 pro max lab finish. Don't want to push it much further, afraid it may blow out.

    prop to pad: 1/2 below

    water pressure: 13psi

    best all around prop: hydromotive 28 pitch o/B Quad4 SSt type B . Top end 86mph

    Topend with two on board and live wells full with fish: 82 to 84 depending on weather.


    0 to 80: 19seconds get some !!!!!
