does anyone have any experience with one of these? boat is a checkmate 259 with a 7.4 385mag. came with mirage 23 turned 5000 boat rode real bow high and chine walked. went to a 24 hydro(i know too big) 4400 but only 1.5 slowerfelt great at first but now not sure if it doesnt let bow ride high enuff. rev 4 is supposed to be middle of road in bow lift but faster than a mirage plus. any opinions?by th way i have a deep X on this boat also.

Thanx Rob

A friend has been experimenting with props on his checkmate as well. The mirage and mirage pluss did not work well for him. Too much bow rise and the props tended to blow out. He went to a rev 4 23 pitch and loved it. Better hole shot and the bow stays down. Might be the ticket for you. Plus, you can always have it labbed to pick up a few hundred rpm if need be.
