I like a nice 3 blade stainless steel prop .but you better have the hp to turn that prop..unless you built your boat as in custom id stick with the stock props..they make brass bronze stainless plastic.white n black

I never played with props with my Sonicwake but I know there’s a lot to it.

its also a loaded question. It’s like hearing you either get a prop that will get you on plane quick or one that is for speed runs

If running fe I wouldn’t make agressive changes because things can get hot quick in boats. Rcgroups forums are really good for boats. I’d ask the guys there that are running the same cat as you what they’d suggest. Little changes can make a huge difference

Yes they are counter rotating and I have a 6s batt for each motor & esc.would it be more practical to run both motors of one battery ? Both batts make it pretty heavy.transom is barely above water at stand still.for some reason I can't load any pics.

you could possibly run 4 3s lipos set up, depending on room in the hull. Only running 1 lipo .on 2 motors would cut your run time in half
