Maybe-depends what you're revving to on your current prop.

As Nos says you need to fit a tinytach and see what you get at WOT. Is it worth it though for 2 mph? If you are getting 25mph on a 3.6m SIB that's pretty good going.

Hi

As said in previous, that pitch prop is ok for towing toys.I run a 13p and will reach more or less 25 mph.I have a tach but not fitted yet but think it will push a 15p if on my own,or with someone light.Have asked what others run but feed back is limited.Get a digital take for around a 10.
