Default Re: Set of Brand New Props for Sale (Suzuki 150-300hp)

Libra. I think you would overspin your motor going to that. The 16 " props have tremendous blade area compared to a 15" (take that extra surface area and multiply it by the rpms ... well ,you get the idea) and you world probably be best served to go to a 21 x 16. I have also heard the 16's like to be run deep, that might help your ventilation.
You could also try taking off a pitch or two on yours (adding cup might also help ventilation). I had Hale propeller in CT balance mine and they are great. Id rec. looking them up and asking them if yours could work. They are nice to talk to and very knowledgeable.
