Default Pro XS 200 on 2018 Ranger 1880 Angler

Long story short I am ditching my Evinrude G2 200 and re-powering my 2018 Ranger 1880 with a new Merc Pro XS 200 and I am hoping somebody with a similar setup can tell me what four blade prop they are running.

I am not running a jack plate with a pretty typical load in the boat including 36 volt trolling motor setup.

If you know which hole your motor is mounted in that would be appreciated as well.

Thank You in Advance of Information!!!

Thank you for the info. I have that same prop coming but I typically prefer 4 blade props for rough water handling. Planning on having the tempest and likely a Bravo I FS as I like to bring two props along when boat camping. Hoping somebody has the Bravo I prop pitch dialed in to save me some time in experimenting. Glad to hear you are liking the Merc. Sounds like most Everyone that is running the new proxs motors are really liking them.

Have identical boat and motor. Had a rev4 18p on it for 1/2 year 5900rpm 53mph holeshot was amazing. Rev4 17p would be perfect but top speed may suffer. Had a 20p bravo LT 54.5mph 5800rpm. I have a 9.9 kicker, 24v ulterra, and lots of gear. I think a 20p bravo fs would probably work very good on it

Thank you for the information. I had a like new Bravo I FS in a 23 pitch sitting on the shelf that I was holding onto until I could get a bit of real world feedback from people running this setup. I will sell that one off and order up a 20 pitch.
