    Those big ear choppers are hard as hell. I bought one with a slight fold on one blade and I had to beat the living hell out of it to move that metal. The small ears are easy to work comparatively. Tempest props too whatever they are made of tough as heck

    if you can work them cold that is the best. If you do need to apply heat then then only go as "hot" as you need to as i'm not talking CHERRY RED lol. Ideally depending on the prop company and the metal you then Cyro it or heat treat it after. May i ask what you are using to make sure your cup is accurate and the same on all 3 blades as that is just as crucial as static balancing

    Using a radius gauge to get it even. To be clear, this isn't a prop I plan to run long term. It doesn't have enough pitch for me. Worked great with my old set up, but too small for the new motor. Plus two of the blades had cracks in the leading edge that I've welded previously. It's more of an experiment for me to see if I can make it work.

    Got a chance to get out and run the new 30 ET that I bought. The first day out was pretty rough and busy so I wasn't able to push it very hard. Saw a best of 90 at about 6,200. I was pretty disappointed as I was thinking it would turn it to the limiter since it had no problem turning a 28ET to the limiter. It felt out of power.

    Just got back in from the river tonight on a much calmer day, almost no traffic, and a lighter fuel load. Was able to run up to 94.1, at about 6,600. Couldn't get much more out of it where I am, I need more room to let it wind out. I also need to work on balance a bit more as its leaning a bit to the driver side when way up on the pad. The ET sure feels to fly the boat higher out of the water than any other prop I've run. But it sure is stable and handles well.

    Jack plate is max up so prop shaft CL is about 1/2" above the pad.

    Here's the best pass so far, GoPro GPS reading a little slower.

    Looks awesome!

    Is your GoPro's GPS reading slow? When we took the kids boat out we got it up to 53.2 on my phone but the GoPro Hero 9 was only saying 52.

    Kevin, yes the GoPro seems to read 1-2MPH slower than my Garmin. It also seems to depend on the camera as well. I have 2 Hero5 Blacks and one is pretty spot on while the other trends low.

    Here is another run I made this morning. The river was a perfect sheet of glass when I first got on the water, what a beautiful morning. I put a 50lb dumbbell in the port wing for balance and it made a world of difference over 90. Set a new personal best of 94.7MPH. Still 1/2" above the pad. Leaning towards going up a few holes on the motor so I can get higher and see if that will help. I'm in the center hole of the clamp at the moment.

    Also, discovered the limit of how far UP to trim where it becomes more airplane than boat haha. With a blip of the throttle and down trim it settled right back down with no trouble at all.

    There's a buy and sell marketplace if you scroll further down the main page. Post your for sale ad in there.
