You know this prop has to be balanced, thinned right?
Get an up grade cable= more important than anything else or you will lose a nice prop in the near future.

Yes I understand that, that's why I ordered a prop balancer and am going to balance it.

you should put all your questions into 1 thread. you start a thread for each question, dude. not needed.
balancing that prop correctly takes a lot of time. its a mix of beryllium and titanium and copper. its quite a bit harder than most props, and the blades are quite thick. for the boat to even get onto a plane with that prop, its gonna take a large amount of thinning. not a fun prop to have to do, but if you do it rite you'll see 50mph.
