    2017 Phoenix PHX 21
    250 SHO 27 4-blade Bravo 1 FS prop
    74 MPH @ 5900 RPMS
    twin poles dual console
    Atlas jack plate running the plate up around 17 (about 2.75" below pad) and very little trim.
    Hole shot is amazing. I was running a Yamaha T2 3 blade 25 pitch which got 6100 rpms and same speed but the hole shot was terrible and she chine walked a lot! I might go to a 4-blade 26 Bravo 1 FS to see if I can up the rpms and pick up some speed.
    Absolutely love this beast of a boat!!!

    Either the fastest bird built or must have been on Guntersville when the flood gates were wide open heading downstream.

    Most won't crack 80 solo with 10 gallons of gas

    I have run 81 once. 80 a few times and 77-79 average depending on load. Never 80 with 2 people. slowest for me is 75 with 2 people, full tank of fuel and 2 full live wells.

    Full tank of gas, just me in the boat (6'4"/300 lbs), full tackle/gear, empty live wells, 45 degrees no wind.
    two 8' power poles, two pro pole seats, 4 batteries (not lithium), 36volt ultrex.

    Most comfortable driving at 71.4 though. I have a video on youtube showing a morning when I topped out at 72.8 on Old Hickory by myself (channel: Big Jim Fishing)

    2015 618 Pro
    175 Pro XS 2 stroke
    24P Tempest Plus
    10" manual plate, 3.375 PTP, 15+ PSI water pressure ~5800 RPMs
    24V Ultrex

    65 MPH with normal tackle and my 9 year old son, no poles/Talons. When I picked the boat up a couple of weeks ago the motor was way too low. I raised to the 3.375 based off of similar setups I found here. A couple of guys are getting more speed. My prop looks a little dinged up, so I might get it worked a bit. Overall I'm happy. Boat rides great and is very easy to drive at top speed. Any ideas to improve or increase performance are welcomed!

    This past Tuesday I aired it out and got these results. I'm still new to driving a boat this big and wide. Came out of a '98 TR-19 175 Merc, big difference but I love it!

    Boat and motor: 2018 920 ProXP with 250 ProXS

    Power Poles/Talon: 2-8ft Poles
    Prop Type/Blades: 25 Fury 3
    Prop to Pad Height: Not measured yet only had it a week
    JackPlate: Atlas usually ran at 16 (previous owner)
    RPMS: forgot to pay attention to haha
    Speed: 74+/- a few tenths GPS
    Also has 5 acid batteries but will switch to lithium for the trolling motor at least in the future.

    The 721 he had before is even faster ;)

    I believe he will be even faster once he test some props out, but 81 is moving out for sure! I believe he is closer 83 now in that 920

    I ran 80.2 last weekend with a full tank of fuel, full tackle, 2-12ft Talons with a 28.5 Bravo...Temp was around 90 and humidity about 80%. My JP gauge is not working so I wasn't really able to play with it, I just set it on 3 and made a pass..New gauge will be here this week.
