I can't help, but what are you after?

A different pitch or a shinier / less dented version of the one you got? New you're probably better asking some of the trade members.

shinier and less dented, i think the engine is well propped, the only issue i have is when towing, going round corners the engine races, kind of cavitates...
that is unless someone has an amazing experience of another prop?

Got a nice 16" pitch one here for 40 if it's any good to you?

More top speed & slower acceleration.

If it's for your SR4, then it may be ok. I used it on a 14' Fletcher with a DT65 Soozook and it was a little over-propped. The SR4 is a lighter boat though. Is it hitting the rev limiter with the 14" pitch prop fitted?

You got Power trim, or mechanical drop onto a pin? Does it do the same thing in big waves?

If yes, PT - try to trim it in a bit. If manual, drop it a hole closer to the transom - might solve the problem.

Having said that a shiny new one can't do any harm...... Sound s like OK pitch
