Anyone using a 5 Blade on their v-Bottom (single engine app.)?

What are you experiencing ?

Too much Bow lift ?

Transom lift ?

Cavitation in turns ?

Stress on the Drive ?

Anyone anyone.................

Cool, I plan on trying a 5 Blade on my 24' Schiada with a 1000hp, hopefully next month when the motor/drive are completed.

The hydromotive P5-X looks like a solid unit. Typically as fast as a bravo in the threads Ive been reading with a better hole shot, less likelyhood of blowout across the board. It is what Im looking at doing

The P5-X is for bow lift
P5 is for transom lift

I run a Maximus on my 270. I like it better than a B1

I have a Maximus that I run on my 270 Hallett step , top end is slightly lower than the bravo 4 blade , but mid-range
is way better . I had to cut the defuser ring off , and cut down the diameter . After the second reduction in diameter . I'm
going to Havasu in 2 weeks to try it .

The boat is almost ready for water, I will see if I can try both types

Thanks

Im sure there are some guys on here that will let you try one before you drop some major coin on a prop.
