    Recommend a prop to replace Fury 4

    Looking for a recommendation to replace a Fury 4 24p. Mine threw a blade and i'm not too keen on buying another one, although it performed really well.
    Can those in the know give me a recommendation on a quality prop, preferably 4 blade, to replace it? I run it on a 2008 ranger z520 with an 2012 Yamaha SHO 250. Medium tackle load, 2 persons, 6 inch hydraulic jack plate and 2 8ft. power poles. It ran 71mph under the right conditions. I'm not so concerned with the ultimate top end speed as I am with holeshot and midrange performance. Oh, and I'd like the new prop to stay in one piece. Thanks guys.

    I'd probably get a 25P Bravo1 FS or Marks Razor4 XL.

    All props are subject to throw blades. Motor height, speed, torque/HP all play into the chances. I have never thrown a blade on my bravos, furys, or razors... I have an 80+ mph boat with raised motor heights.

    The Razor 4XL performed admirably on my Z520s, and was the most durable prop I’ve ever run.

    Thanks guys. I'm leaning toward the Razor 4XL at this point. Anyone know if they run pitch for pitch with the fury 4? Keep the recommendations coming!

    Call and ask Mark about his thoughts... Good thing about Marks props, He will exchange them or tweak them if they don't run the correct rpms etc.

    I know we have different boats but we I’ve tried all the popular 4 blades out there and the Fury 4 25p is the best prop ive ever ran on my Ranger 520. Second was Marks Razor XL 24p. The razor and my fury were pretty much same results except i got 5mph more with my fury over the razor even after Mark added cup to it. Razor XL is a strong prop. Once set up it was a rocket out of the hole and boat came up nice and flat. When power loading I can push my F350 against the parking pawl. Same with my Fury 4

    I spoke with Mark Croxton the other day. He recommended his Razor 4 in a 22 pitch for my boat and set-up at 2300 ft. of elevation. He said all prop pitch is not measured the same and his are pitched stiff. So I ordered it. He also said that if I have any problems with it, ever, or needed a different pitch to just to contact him. I probably won't get to run it until late March or April so if you want any info on it, I won't be able to report until then. Thanks for the help everyone.
