prop for mercruser optimax

Hi I have a Avon 6.2 with a 150 Optimax 2005 model. I'm running 3 blader lazer line 21. I'm getting 5800rpm and top speed 62.8 (GPS Speed). I've had marine nortica in Poole set this boat up for the best speed and tried many props. This was the best of them. Let me know how you get on. Rob

Robbie,
What make is the lazer line prop?
62.8 what?
Do you have any pics of the transom? How high is the cav plate above the keel?
Is there a big compromise on acceleration to achieve max speed with your current set-up?

That's not what Mercury say on the box ! It says it's both

When I bought my new Opti about 18 months ago it came with controls , smart gauges, throttle and Prop in the package. Is this still the case or do you have to buy the props seperately

My Optimax toybox arrived yesterday with a Laser II 19" pitch prop

All part of the package, as were the control box and Smartcraft gauges

Laser II are a good all rounder for fairly lightly loaded boats compromising well between top speed and handling. Their major vice is they don't like surfacing, so you can't run mega transom heights.
