Purchased very early spring last year when the ice was still on the lake. 2016 24 SSRX with the Express Tritoon package and a Yamaha F150. (Would have preferred the SPS but this was in my price range). Max speed with the aluminum prop (don't know the diameter or pitch and is in storage now) I am getting into the low 30's at WOT and around 5200-5300 RPM. I want to upgrade props this year and was thinking the Yamaha Reliance 14.5 x 15p might be a good fit and give better performance. Anyone have a similar setup?

Nice Benny.
I have a Yamaha F150 Mounted 2nd hole from the top with SPS on my 2019 22 ssrxp. I have the Yamaha reliance SDS 14.5x15p. It is perfect for my boat. Getting 39 mph WOT at 6000 rpm. Don’t know how it would work on the express toon.

15x15 Enertia (thanks Todd!) on my 24SSL (2012) with Express and strakes and a Merc 150. I used to hit 40-41, but I think the flexing in my flo-torq IV absorbs 1-2 mph. Simple enough to test by putting the old rigid hub kit back in, just haven't tried it yet. Love this prop. I think the 14.5x15p would be a good fit... That's a very popular prop with the Yamaowners.

I am really looking for the best all around performance. It's not too often that I push WOT.

Thanks. No longer available but will look elsewhere. Anyone heard of Propgods? Spoke with Ken. Much cheaper but not a Reliance Prop. Any thoughts? Thanks

I’ve heard nothing but great things about Ken at Propgods, but have never dealt with them. If you do some searches in the Forums, many have reported good interactions and outcomes with them. I also believe you might be able to “try out” props through them barring damage and mailing costs. Don’t quote me on that though.

I ran a 14.5x15 reliance on a R22, 150hp with ESP. The prop was good but seemed to slip in tight turns and had a narrow trim range. Changed to a 15x15 Enertia, this prop made a noticeable improvement. Less slipping, more trim range, more speed with no prop chatter. Highly recommend the Enertia.

Same here on the Enertia. No blowouts in turns. Far more trim range.
