Default Warrior V2121 Suzuki 300 Prop Selection Help

As mentioned in another thread, I'm going to talk to the Warrior factory and my dealer for help with this as well. But I thought I would solicit as many opinions as possible since I don't think I have ever received a boat previously that was properly propped. I'm not adverse to carrying a couple of props, so if anyone wants to recommend one for a certain situation that's fine too. A great all around choice would be even better. Thanks.

If your running the 16'' diameter prop powertech makes a much better prop then the suzuki prop, powertech has lot better cupping. For what pitch to run I would guess your going to want to start with a 23 pitch.

Thanks for the feedback. They have a few different series. Could you recommend one? In particular, I am wondering if I should be looking at a three or four blade prop. I'll be running trim tabs on the boat. Thanks.

If your running tabs you probaly don't need a 4 blade the 3 blade should be good

Any recommendations on which three blade? I see several three blade 23 pitch props listed.
  • PTC3 - Lifter Series Bowlifting Props - Similar to Rapture, Ballistic, Stiletto
  • OFS3 - Offshore Series Props
  • LFS3 - 16" Diameter Performance Offshore
  • OFX3 - High Performance Offshore Lifter Series
  • VMX3 - High Performance Bass/Bay Series Bowlifting Props - Similar to Yamaha VX-Max

Thanks again for the help.

The LFS 3 would be the best match for you. And also Powertech price points that prop so you can get a very good deal on it. I just happen to have a 23 pitch on the shelf for a very good price. If your interested 218-824-0000

I just left a message with the dealer to see what prop is on it currently and if it would be possible to return it for a credit. Thanks again for the help.

Apparently, it's going to be difficcult to return the prop since the boat was shipped from the factory with it. The prop is a Suzuki 3 x 16 x 23R. Could you let me know how you would expect this prop to perform, and how the Powertech LFS3 would be an improvement? Thanks again.

Both props will have about the same speed. What the powertech has to offer is better cupping, thus less ventalating. Powertechs metal is much stronger than suzukis. Powertech has the cushion lock hub so you won't have to worry about hub failure.
