I've got twin CR motors but these Vengeance's are never going to be of use on my boat so splitting the pair and having a selection of RH props could work just for loaning out to single rig owners
I used to have quite a selection of RH Yam and Merc props, but were sold after the sale of my last boat.

I did try a Vengeance RH prop years ago which didn't hold fond memories for me. Obviously different boat and different engine. But still, it wouldn't be my first choice if I had to buy without trying it. Does the Vengeance use a Flo torq hub?

props wanted

Hi

further to a previous thread and a bit of investigative googling Mercury/Mariner are recomending the following for my set up.

if anyone has any of the following on ready to fit condition (no refurbs etc) please let me know.

the motor is a 2002 Mariner 60 ELPT EFI 4 stroke, not Bigfoot.

10.625x12
10.375x13
10.75x12
10.5x13
10.875x11

Makes me realise the 23 pitch on it at the moment is miles out and also explains the 3500rpm WOT

I've not used the vengeance but I get the impression they're designed more for smaller, lightweight hulls which would tie in with your experience with them. I would happily let you try it for the cost of postage but being brand new it'd be a shame to render it s/h when it's probably no good to you.
(I think the fact that I paid 99p for it on fleabay is irrelavent)

My experience was with a smaller hull (BWM Deepsea 17 and 90 Merc).
Will it fit straight to the Evinrude or will I need an adaptor?

You'll need a Flo-torq adaptor part number 835266Q1 for a V6 2 stroke.

"The Vengeance is Mercury’s general-purpose line of stainless steel propellers – providing Mercury quality and amazing durability at a price that represents real value for the dollar. The Vengeance provides increased top speed, acceleration, and durability versus a comparable aluminum prop."

Taken from the merc site and tells you nothing!
