Prop experience wanted....

Hi,


I'm looking at getting a stainless prop and am leaning towards Powertech.
Now they have a complete line of props and since I almost nothing about the differences I am turning to the prop experts on here.

I have a 5.2m rib with a tohatsu 90hp TLDi on there, at the moment there is an alluminum vortex 13.25 x 17 prop on and I'm getting around 40Mp/h with 2-3 persons on the boat and doing max 5200-5300 rpm


I got that the best prop for me ( all purpose ) would be the nsr3 prop in 16pitch or if I wanted to do more waterski etc get the rxb4 15pitch.

But on the site the nsr3 is mentioned to be 25degree rake, and similar to turbo props.

they also have a red3 that is similar to stiletto props...

Anybody that can help me thru this jungle, I just use the boat for cruising and from time to time pull a ski or toy..

Should I stay with powertech and folow the advice or get a turbo 1 prop ?
Anybody here with one of tehse props ?


Thanks

Ok tried the nrs3 in 16P but was abit too low on rpm, anybody here that has an 90tldi on a 5 meter rib that can tell me what prop he is running ?

Also I seem to see alot of yamaha outboards with semi cleaver props, would this be a good prop for a 5.2m rib ?

thanks
