    Hoping the 25p gives me an awesome cruise even if i cant turn it to 5k.

    I had 26's on my 33 when I got it and that was too little prop for the 500's so you should be right there with the 25's
    Because without beer things just dont seem to go as well

    Yep, I think I will be good. Finally came in, took off Friday and Monday, so if the rain stays away, I will be able to run them! Sunday and Monday should be dry as it stands... and cool too.

    Kill switch 2nd wire? What does it power?

    The rev 4s were great!!
    Walked on plane right at 2k.
    Wind 5mph, water was pretty flat!!
    3500 @ 49.5-51 up and downwind.

    Could cruise st 2300 at 28-30 mph with no porpoise. Not that i EVER Cruise that slow!! Lol
    4k fast cruise was around 57
    Wot 4800 at 67.1

    Felt high and stable at cruise and wot. Had to give more trim with these, but was expected with no lab!!

    Labbed mirages were 68.2 (non plus bblades)
    37-3800 was 50.

    Love’em! Got my good cruise back at 3500

    Bravo! (Pun intended)
    4800 @ WOT seems a hair low, only if you have the magnum’s for power? However, you’ve only lost 1mph up top. Significant gains everywhere else!
    Now for all the questions...
    They seem like they lifted the whole hull out of the water, not just a bow carrying prop? You said you gave it more positive trim. Significant amount, or just a wee bit more to carry the bow? Try any maneuvering or tight turns to see if they’d slip or blow out! What power package you have? What size prop pitch?
    I’ve been very intrigued with the Rev4 and would like to try a set next year.

    Ok.. sorry, hadnt gotten around to type this out for you! You can all me too if you want. Five 04- Five54-118two

    454mag mpis (385hp) wot are 46-5000. I would probably turn a lil higher in a bit of chop and trim a lil more, but usually takes a couple trials to figure out the sweet spot. But still not bad.
    I might be able to get the 1mph back in some chop but worked well.
    I have run with 3 blades labbed and stock, bravo 1s labbed and stock, IN and OUT.
    Spinning in held the bow up the highest and felt reall tall on the water.

    This felt higher than the 3 blades but real stable and these Rev4s hold the bow nice with the Rake they have.
    Coming out of a labbed prop, you dont really need much positive trim as the are “labbed” for that. I needed probably less positive trim than the bravo1s but more than I am used too.
    Not a big concern, just noted it was more than I was used to but not to the moon.

    Oh.. these props were 25p. I was worried about them being too tall from what I read, so I put my current wot and speed into Mercury’s prop calculator and went for it! I knew the 23s would spin up top, but wanted my cruise back.

    I would choose these over labbed b1s now having tried both, and bblades doesnt recommend labbing the rev4.
    Climbing out the water at only 2k was pretty awesome.
