Ran the 70" Q Friday and this is what I found.Hole shot 60 yards 32 MPH deep water.Cruise 2000 Rpm's 25 MPH.Wot deep water 38 MPH.Break free on the ground 2100-2200 RPM.I thought it was interesting to see that in 60 Yards and top end WOT the 68" Cypress and the Q ran the same.On the ground is where the difference was.When the boat broke free with the Q it would crawl around on the ground with less RPM"s than the Cypress did.Also ran both props from a stand still up a steep levee .The Cypress made it about half way.The Q made it all the way to the top.By the way when I had the 72" Q on the boat it only made it half way up the levee. I set the 70" Q turning 2700 RPM"s.It will be interesting to see if I gain anything wih the NGH.

What hull, riggin etc are your running that on. I have a 200 A/V as said running a 72" wt wide blad on a 12 alumitech aluminum hull 8' wide w/ 1/4 poly mine breaks free @ 1700' cruises 25mph @ 1800 wide open 52mph all gps readings yours seems really slow. My buddy runnin 72" Q on a 12 predator fiberglas w 180 straight valve stock engine will do a little better than mine all the way around. Not doggin your boat by any means just curios about the performance differences

Hull is a Diamond Back Ultra Lite 11' 9" with 1/4 " polly.The boat has a trim tab to keep it from porposing so it's not going to run as fast top end which doesn't matter that much to me anyway.I am a heavy weight weigh 250 lbs and the place that I test the boat on dry is not a pasture or back yard conditions.It is green stuff that is sticky.I think this will give me a better idea of how much thrust a given prop will give on my rig.I would like to gain cruise speed and maybe cut down on rpm's.

Out of all the props tested the 3 blade NGH pushed the most on the test machine. You may be able to do a search to find it.

Three blade at 66 and 68 inch Excalibur prop work good on a 200 horse power Lycoming with a lot of snap

had a 68 Excalibur on my 200 angle valve. not enough prop. put excalibur on my 170 with 10 to 1 comp and it does great. put a 70 q on the 200 wot 2875 and it goes anywhere you want. Excalibur on 170 is faster than 200 on top end but I want the q for the woods
