    How high is high? Like you talking about 1 in ABOVE PAD?

    I think anything higher than 3in below the pad can cause extra stess on props... I run 1in below but have not thrown or cracked a blade on this boat/motor in 15 years... I feel lucky.

    I've always read and personally experienced that the majority of 4 blades (and majority of applications, not go fast applications) run lower than 3 blades?

    There is no rule of … Since diameter plays a big factor.

    You can run a fury 4 high. No blowout whatsoever and stays hooked up well. No thrown blade so far. I have to think rpms play atleast some factor. Surely a 1:86 gear case at 5600 doesn’t put as much stress on one as a 1.75 or 1.62 at 6200.
    Listen, smile and agree.....then do what you want.

    Nock on wood I have never lost a blade on any props I have owned in 34 years . The tempest is very hard to beat once it has been balanced and Taylor built to your rig . All props after awhile get out of balance nicked up and dull over time some are out of balance from the get go . I'm firm believer in keeping props sharp and balanced.
