Fury prop for a RIB?

Have a 7.5 Scorpion with closed deck and build in cockpit with an Evinrude 250 DI. The prop is an OMC SST 14,25 x 23.

Read a lot of fantastic things on the new Mercury Fury prop. But only mounted on bass-boats. Nowhere is a RIB mentioned in the reviews. Would that prop be a good idea on my rig?

Was thinking of the 14 x 24. Have the hub kit allready. But some advise would come in handy before ordering one.

On a Humber ocean pro 6.3 with 200 Etec HO it gave one more knot at top speed.
That's compared with a tempest plus but the tempest has better handling at least on this rib.
