forgot to mention motor... 2003 70hp Yamaha 2-stroke
If you want the best shallow water prop it’s not coming off a shelf. Jack knows his shit. Don’t bash him on this forum.They're going to tell you to run a 4 blade, most likely the SWW4.
Foreman wants 695.00 now, and acted like I'd never run a boat when I talked to him. Power Tech got my money.
How is stating he talked to me like I don't know how to run a boat bashing him? I didn't criticize his work, or say anything derogatory.If you want the best shallow water prop it’s not coming off a shelf. Jack knows his shit. Don’t bash him on this forum.
A 4 blade is a POS on a Maverick HPX Tunnel, it’s just the “go to” prop people sell when someone asks for a shallow skiff prop. A cupped 3 blade will outperform a 4 blade in every way on this hull and motor.
I know Jack personally and the only reason I ever heard him talk to someone like that is because instead of letting him know how they want their boat to perform they tell him how to do his job. I hang at his shop and hear how he talks to his customers. Nothing pisses him off more than a guy that tells him what prop he needs instead of asking. He is THE shallow water prop man on the Gulf Coast. He’s in his mid 60’s and has been running skinny water longer than most of us and our fathers. If you second guess his expertise he will talk to you like a misbehaving grandchild, if you respect him and what he does you will get the best prop for your rig and some of the best boat driving advice out there.How is stating he talked to me like I don't know how to run a boat bashing him?

PT will recommend a 4 blade if you aren't running a jack plate. They recommended a 3 blade heavy cup on mine, because I have a jack plate.
