You didn’t mention where you fish or how far you run so it’s hard to recommend a prop. But your rpms tell me there’s more left. You should be hitting 5800/6000 rpms. What hole is your motor hung?

I’ve found the best performance with the SCB/YBS prop when the motor is mounted on the 3rd hole. Other props I’ll run on different motor heights.
If you raise the motor and decide to stick with the SCB I recommend going up in pitch to 16 or possibly 17.

You can always call Ken at Prop Gods in Tampa.
