Post Gatortail fat blade
Got a gatortail 2 blade fat blade prop coming in sometime this week. It looks similar to a hammer in size. I'm going to see what it does stock and then get baggy to do his magic on it. Anyone have experience running this prop?

Yeah man, unworked I was able to turn it 30mph at 4500. Once it's worked it will scoot well I'm sure

Just got my worked fat blade back from baggy and ran it today. He worked it to a 10 pitch, added heavy cupping, sharpened the blades, took .25 inches off of each blade, and polished it. Gained 3 mph in shallow water and 5 in deep (yes, for some reason my skiff runs better in deep water). I'm running 32 in shallow and 34-35 in deep. Holeshot is the best ive ever been in hands down and got the boat up to top speed in about 5 seconds. Very happy with it. put my dad In the boat and ran the exact same speeds, so it carries a load very well.

Who is baggy? And how can I get ahold of him? I’m getting a 37efi level 3 and wanting to see what best 2 blade is for it.

868-0103 is his number bro. He owns a prop shop in Houma. Best around. Give him a call and he will point you in the right direction
