Tempest 25


 emoticon O.k Jay I took a buddy's tempest 25 out for a test run this morning on the Z.All I can say is WOW!!!.That thing popped the Z out of the water like a cork.It ran like a scalded cat all the way to about 65-68.I hit 73 with no problems other than the chine.The chine kind of caught me by surprize because of how fast it got there. I ran out of time had to go so I didn't run it anymore.I feel it had 74-75 in it easily.

My tempest plus 26 must be JUNK!!!

When I looked at the shape of this prop I really thought that there was no way it was going to run as good as mine.He has taken a grinder and shapened the edges and it has nicks in the edges.WOW!! this stock tempest smoked my Plus. Holeshot , midrange, and top end

25 to a 26 should be only 200 rpms on the other end. Without checking either one on the guage, the only thing I can tell you is that the 25 must on the money as for being a true prop vs.the 26.

Re: Tempest 25


Lets just say that as soon as I can get the extra fund the 26 TP will be coming your way for some B&B work.You would then be able to tell me how bad off it is or not.

Shadow was with me all morning doin some line wettin so I couldn't let her stretch her legs but when I dropped the hot foot all I could say was WOW! I was thinking that as easy as it come out of the hole that I would slam the limiter on top end.To my surprize 73 and still no limiter. 72 was max with the 26 at 5900 RPM.

Like I said he has taken a grinder to the edges and sharpened them. Looked like crap and had nicks up and down the ground edges. emoticon

Re: Tempest 25


Yea! but when it comes to using it for what it was designed to be used for , it smoked that pretty shiney Tempest +.

Do you think that you can get my Plus to run like that? emoticon

Re: Tempest 25


Funny you say that,did you know a prop that has a satin or brushed finish is actually faster than a polished finished?

Re: Tempest 25


I'm sure it is but wouldn't think it would be that much. That's the same thing as sanding a hull. Creates air pockets between the water and surface it is contacting.

Am I correct? emoticon

Thats correct. Goes back to old school racing tricks. Every little bit adds up to more mph's...

Re: Tempest 25


I'm not really trying to get Max speed out of the Z right now I'm just trying to get optimum performance out of the prop I have.
I think right now I am at about 16-18% slip which I think is way high. emoticon
