    Prop advice - 2000 Pantera Classic

    I just purchased a 2000 Bass Cat Classic. I have a freshly rebuilt 2004 3.0L 200 Optimax I was running on my Nitro that I'm installing on this boat. It has an old CMC 5.5" setback manual jackplate. The prop it came with is in pretty sad shape. What is the best prop for this boat?

    On my 2001 classic with my 200 EFI a 25” trophy plus was the best prop for my boat at the time. Fury props were not out then so I don’t know how they would do. I tried a ridiculous number of props on that rig and regardless of what motor I had on it a trophy plus was its favorite prop.

    I have a 25 trophy on my 98 PII. Seems to be the best all around. If it didn't have the 2.5L Merc, I think a 3 blade would be better.
