2019 ProStar Prop

Have a new Prostar With the 6.2L engine. Wondering if anyone knows what prop would give the boat a top end around 50mph or so. Currently goes 44 and we like to do a lot of barefooting and want more speed for trick runs. Thanks!!!

Unrealistic to expect a prop to get you 6 more mph. Thatís not what the hull was designed for. You might pick up 2-3 mph but not 6.

Why did you go to the large motor over the small one? I am looking at a 2019, the dealer is telling me to stay with the small motor since we are not using the boat in 3 event.

He also is talking us out of the mini tower, says the ones he has sold already most people do not like them. Did you get the tower?

We slalom and barefoot, sometimes dbl on both.

As of right now, less than 20% pick the tower.
