You need that figure. 4k rpm sounds way too low for WOT with a 19" pitch K series.

Your 6m Ribeye has a 100hp Yam I think and you had the black aluminium 19"series I guess

Looking at the test results for the larger engines they have also tried Performance series, Salt Water series and relienace series with 3 or 4 blades.

I would be tempted to call Yamaha and ask their thoughts now as they have done quite a few tests and in particular in conjunction with Ribeye. That way you can tell them if you want power early or top speed. Certainly the conversations we have had with bith have meant we changed a few props over the years from the standard fit, as we needed good pick up and I was not looking for total max speed.

Once you know which prop is best suited for your boat and engine , then shop about as there are deals to be done as none of the new props are cheap and there are some good ones on sale via Ribnet which some of us have barely used but changed for reasons given above

If you're after a 19" and can wait a while you'll find shipping an aluminium Michigan Wheel Match with the right hub in from the US a better prop than the white K series props.

I've been running one for the last 3 years and it beats the K series props hands down.
