Post Big blade or hammer???
Running a 40 GTR with exhaust and intake. Turns a worked 12 pitch merc 3 blade at 4600rpms at 35mph with just me in the boat. Thoughts as to what two blade would be best for me and what has worked for y'all. I get all my props worked, so that will be taken into consideration as well.

Thanks yall

I'm running a worked hammer by baggy, awesome props for wear and load carrying. Big blade is the faster prop but not as durable.

Do you find the holeshot to be about the same for both?

I've had both and ran both, and have also run DMAXs rig with the aforementioned worked prop. If you can turn a hammer, run a hammer. The holeshot is better.

I believe I can, because I can turn a 12 pitch merc 3 blade, so I think I could turn the hammer no problem

If you're running a 40 you can. A 37 efi or a modded 35 can as well.

I have not and I'd be curious to know more. Regardless, give a big blade a try and worst case, get baggy to work it a little more and you'll have yourself something nice.
