Best prop for 180

Post by Rstuder304 »

Looking for the best overall/ pushing prop for my 180 . Boat has a 5 blade razor x it's a snappy prop but I'm looking for better performance on the dry. Thanks for any advice

Water Walker Cypress Series will give you more dry push. You'd maybe want a 70" though.
Call and talk to them, Plum will know the pros and cons of 68 or 70.
Won't go wrong either way, if you find a deal on one though.

What size is your RazorX? Let me know if you wanna sell it. I run an older Powershift 68" Cypress on my 0360AV and it does pretty good.

I know everyone has there opinion but I've ran 2 aluminum boats with water walkers & 1 with wt narrow,12ft old bear aluminum w 160 with 70in water walker,11.6 cottonmouth w 180 with a 70in whisper tip narrow,& now 11.6 diamondback with 160 with a 68in water walker,both water walker were cypress blades & imo the water walker was best all around for what I do which is hunt,fish & frog,thats just my experience

I had a 0360 on 12ft bear hull had a 72" h when I bought it tried an older warp drive and then bought a 68" cypress you will lose speed on the water but if you want dry ground grunt cypress was the best on the hill by far

Thanks for all the input. Sounds like the cypress is a good match for these 4 cyl. I believe my razor x is a 68in If anyone is interested thanks again!
