Well I finally got my new power tech last week after a month's wait. I was able to put it on today and take it for a spin. Previously I was running the Yamaha Saltwater Series II 15 1/2 x 17 on my F300.
I only ran a little while in the bay but I can see improvement getting up on plane now. Before I had to hit 38-3900 rpm to plane off and now I get there around 35-36. I was doing 4000 cruise now hitting 28 mph and only burning 12.8 with a topped off fuel tank with just me aboard. I did seem to lose some top end speed but hard to tell with my topped off tank. I will get back and post up some more numbers once this winds dies and I get a chance to run it offshore.

This prop is working out well so far. Lost a little off the top end but plane faster and getting better fuel burn which is what I was after. Shaved 9-10 gallons off a canyon run. I now cruise at 4100@ 27-28 mph and burn 13.8-14 gph
