    Legend V20 Mercury 4 stroke prop

    Wondering if any guys on here with V20ís and the new Merc 4s have any input on props. Thought a 24P Fury 3B would be perfect but Iím only turning 5600 ish rpm and 65 mph. Hydraulic jackplate around 12 for best rpm.

    Food for though I tried a 22P Bravo 4B and was doing the same speed with rpmís at 6050. Curious if anybody else is experimenting too!

    When I had the 250 I got 71.8 @ 5840 and 2.25” on my Bob’s plate. I’m not sure what that equates to prop to pad though. I can tell you that I’ve replaced my throttle cable because it separated and would give me a different speed almost every time put. I have a 300R now and my top speed so far has been 79.6 without unloading anything.

    Forgot to say that was with the 24 fury on both motors.

    I tried several props.... ended up with 25p Bravo FS. Hole shot is insane. Love the cornering with the 4 blade.. 70mph tournament loaded, live wells full with 2 big guys ...6100 rpms.

    I have a Sho, but same boat. I run a 24 or 25 bravo, depending on the season. Two weeks ago I had the 24 turning 6400 rpm @73 mph, fairly loaded with two guys. Beats the heck out of a three blade in my opinion
