Well.. it would appear that you're running to the manufacturer's limit for RPM, any higher RPM's are not recomennded by the manufacturer. Your top end speed seems a little bit low, but if you're running with a lot of gear (and it sounds like you are) you're doing pretty good for speed.

As far as I know you don't have a lot, if any, options for another aluminum propeller, assuming that your running out to 5500 RPM after some trim adjustment.

If you're looking to go to stainless you could get the same size prop or go down a pitch or two and get a little more speed and probably a little more holeshot, depending on which direction you pick.

Talk to a dealer and see what they would recommend too...

Good Luck!
