What bravo do you have, LT or FS? If it is the LT, you can simply have any prop shop cut some of the flare off, 1/8"-3/8" or so. The more flare cut off, the more bow lift. A lot of people are doing this, and even your basic prop shop can easily handle it. 24"Bravo is alot of prop pitch.

Tuned Rev 4 will give you more bow lift. Croxton, DAH, Brainerd Props are some well known prop tuners.

First question is which version of the Bravo are you running? If it's the LT, a swap to the FS will certainly help, and should be pretty easy to do if you keep your eyes on the forums and classifieds.

If you want to get an FS worked, my #1 choice would definitely be Mark Croxton, I think he's by far the best when it comes to the Bravos. Know your current specs for speed, RPM, and height, know what you want the prop to do, and he'll make it happen for you. His prices and turnaround time are excellent.

The Rev4 is a great prop and I love mine in rough conditions, but it will give you a lot of stern lift and a much flatter ride than the Bravos. If you're looking for bow lift, the Bravo is the way to go.

P.S. I used to be a DAH guy. I'm not anymore, and nor will I ever be again...

Long story. Probably best left for campfires and Private Messages...

Sei,
Without doing any work on your current prop, pick up a 22 pitch bravo of the same model and give it a try.

I suspect that by pitching down 2 inches, you will have everything you need in a prop.

After picking up the 22 pitch and running it on your rig, let us all know your test results.

Take care
