River rocket prop recommend

6 posts in this topic

Guys dint know how live this forum is as very many people don't post here anymore but I have learned a lot on a lot of different forums.

I just bought a 2005 STV River rocket with a pretty nasty 260 on it.it has a 20 inch mid right now with offshore and a cle lower. What prop would you gentlemen recommend for nice holeshot good mid-range and high-speed passes it came with a few different ones but haven't been able to try them yet as transport has not brought my boat to me yet after going and looking at it and riding in it....thank you fellas...

Early Hoss Tritons work very well. I had a 14 x28 Hoss that was 3mph faster than my Merc 28ET. What's the RPM limit of that 260 and what is your top speed desired?.

Limiter is up to like 8700 if I remember correctly and I'd like to get into the teens if possible with keeping descent hole shot...

At 8500 w/1.87 lower a 30 should put you at 114mph.

What style prop would you say? Also 14.5 or 15 ? And do you know anyone who may have one for sale?
