Question 300 offshore prop? on 2100 skeeter

Looking for some advice on propping this combo. Would like to get a little better hole shot and better top end speed. Currently i get an average of 58 mph with both tanks full, two people, and gear. Looking for anyone with the similar package of boat and motor to share with me any prop testing results and what they would recommend. Thanks

Like I said I think you will like the Turbo 1. Half tanks, 1 guy we have got 60.8 with this prop. Full tourny load 58.5-59.5.

I will be trying some other props when we get the boats out. If I find something better I will post it.

Well a little update as I have tested some props. I tried a Turbo TXP 21p and the Lightning on the same day and the TXP was 1mph faster and the boat had more lift. Tested with me and other guy, pretty much flat conditions which isn't the best but the TXP ran 61mph@5800-5900 and the Lightning was 60mph@5800. TXP seemed a little slower then the Lightning out of the hole but not real noticable.

Next I tried a "X" vs 21p Lightning. Today I was alone and the Lightning ran 61mph@5800-5900 and "X" ran 63mph@5600 Had it out all weekend and with 3 people, bow and rear wells full, bowmount, cooler, gear...etc we ran 60.5mph. I felt the hole shot was only a tad slower or same then the Lightning. We are going to test this prop on my dads boat without a jackplate and see how it does.

Last prop I have to try when it comes in is a TXP 23p.

Skeeter,
Have you tried a 21p Yamaha Pro Series?

Robert I havent tried a pro series, Yamaha says they are only rated for 225hp but then I think somewhere on here I seen Jimmy Bell runs one on his boat or he wants to?. Also my dad ran a pro series 23p in his old 2050 Skeeter with a 250hpdi.

The prop I am running now until the TXP comes in is a Turbo 1 23p! The TXP had some very good lift, actually the best of all the props I have tried. I can also run the jackplate 1-1.5" higher because it holds better.

I think its going to be a lot like the Turbo 1 21p. 14 1/2" diameter and not too aggressive. I have ran every 21p Turbo prop(1, Lightning & TXP), Powertech 3 & 4 blade and a Tempest.

I figured since the 21p gets the boat out of the water with ease I should be trying a 23p and so far I am happy with it. I also see Yamaha rates our motors for 300hp@5500rpm.

What prop are you running?
