Prop Match

7 posts in this topic

After breaking in a 150 Optimax this weekend, the RPM's seem a little low even when trimmed up and pushing a rooster tail. The RPM's are running at 5000 with a Hustler prop on it from the dealer. Does anyone know the exact specs it should be running at WOT?

The rpm range on that should be 5250-5750

It is an aluminum prop. I will see if I can get some more info. The top end with 2 in it the other night, calm lake, full tank of gas (33 gallons) 3 batteries, no other fishing gear, was 46-47 on GPS.

Your RPMs are too low and you really shouldn't have an aluminum prop on that motor. Is that really how it was sold to you? I would complain to your dealer, it doesn't seem like a good setup at all. I'm surprised it was even sold with an aluminum prop.

Given what they did with the prop, I would check to make sure they have your motor mounted at the right height (ie. high enough) --- raising the motor up (if it is too low) will give you more rpms.

I think props like a 19 pitch or 21 pitch Tempest Plus are good candidates, same goes for a 19 pitch Rev 4 or maybe a 17 pitch if you're not getting enough rpms. If you really want holeshot and stern lift even a 19 or 21 pitch HighFive is an option, although probably not needed for your boat. Someone at your dealer or a prop shop should be able to make other recommendations too. Good luck getting it figured out.

    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
    • Just random ones I like. 1) Grand Marais fall. 2) HSO member Laker fishing. 3) Door County Wis.
    •   Yep and the Hawks won again!
    • Choosing 3 "best photos" is tough, but here are 3 of my favorites right now.  Cottonwood vs. Lightning Morel cluster  Pup in the snow
    • Missed the game but I guess I am glad I did. 9 games to go, still time to right the ship but at this pace the blues are going to pass us up.
    • Waiting for the new H'birds I ordered.  Hope it shows soon.  I be using the LCX as long as I have to.  del,  yes it is 10 inch screen
