    I am in need of a new prop for my 17 mitzi with a 50 etech. I am currently running a 13.25x17 and getting about 5400-5500 rpms. Does anyone have any other suggestions? Thanks for the help!

    There are a few questions that you need to ask yourself:

    What do I want a new propeller to do?
    Is it more rpm? more speed? better hole shot? better handling?

    When you pick a question you want answered that will lead you down the best choice path! :cool:

    Every inch in pitch you take off will gain you around 200 rpms. Since you are at 5500, I'd say you need at least a 15 pitch to get you close to 6000 rpms, maybe a 14 pitch.

    I've been pleased with the Powertechs i've owned.
