      How to create an @mention - Click Here   07/16/2015

      You can use the @mention aspect whenever you want someone to be notified about a post or let them know you are talking about them. Type the @ symbol type in a couple "lowercase" letters pause then once the names pop-up either select or keep typing in letters to narrow down the list until you get the @mention name you are looking for. You can play a game so members can see how it works. If you want to practice or If your name has been @mentioned below you should see it in your notifications (upper right) and you then have to @mention one or two members who haven't been mentioned inthe comments section below. Let's see how long we can keep this going. Anyone who duplicates a name that has already been @mentioned loses. This is the first group to be @mentioned to get the ball rolling: @Borch @Scott K @Corey Bechtold @Matt Johnson @mrklean @eyeguy 54 @Finns @IceHawk @MarkB @Cliff Wagenbach @Wayne Ek

In theory for each 1" of pitch change it should move your RPM +-200, depending on the direction you take. With that being said, each prop is a little different so your best bet is to work with a dealer that has some test props to find what you like.

I'd try the 21... you may need a 23 with the high gear case lower unit that suzuki (who made the motor for johnson), but your holeshot may suffer a bit with the 23.

Fish2Live - I have this motor and I believe I currently have a 13 1/4 x 19 Hustler aluminum.

I am not at WOT when I hit 5,500 rpms so you may want to look at a 21.

I've thought about swapping props, but I like the holeshot I have and I'm rarely on big water so a few mph top end isn't of great concern.

Enjoy the motor. Mine has been flawless.
