Glad you found the forum madclayhomes (I’m the guy that suggested here on Facebook). Go to props and performance and read the verado mounting hole thread. Some good info there. Plenty of lucky guys here with boats spec’d like yours will chime in I’m sure.
Looking for prop suggests for our new boat 2018 QX25 tri toon powered by Mercury Verado 350. Please state if ur suggestion is for best overall performance, top speed, etc...
I have a similar boat but with the 350 Verado. I’ve tried the Revo 14.5 x 17p prop on mine. Actually lost 3-5MPH at WOT and couldn’t notice a difference on whole shot.I have 2018 QX25 with a Mercury 400R that came with a Mercury Enertia 15 dia by 15p prop, which currently gets me in the 51-52 mph range.
I'm going to try a Mercury REV 4 blade with the same dia and pitch as my Enertia. I'm told I'll get an improved hole shot, and with customization/fine tuning of the prop, rake and cup, will potentially get me in the 55-56 mpg range.
Looking forward to trying it out !!
You may be right.. My primary concern isn't top speed. We cruise at 30-40 most oftenI tried a 15 by 16p and lost speed, RPM's (6,900 to 6,600 rpm) and reduced my hole shot. Went back to my 15 by 15p.
I'm told with the proper prop tuning. I wont' have the reduced speed you mentioned......I guess I'll find out in a couple of months

I went back to the Enertia 14.5 x 17P I think it’s the best of both for my boat. Great whole shot and she tops out at 50.6 MPH on the GPS.
Mine is mounted in the top hole. I can trim it to about 4.5°-5.0° for best top end speed.Where do find the sweet spot is for your trim setting? I was playing with it this weekend and blowing the prop out anything above 1. I’m in the third hole with the 17 Enertia as well. I’m going to play around with it a little more today . I’m still in the break in mode...
