Prop Suggestions For New Legend Alpha 191 W/200 Pro Xs

I know this is not the "correct" place but the weather has most of us land locked and I know this forum gets the most views.

Anyway, I have a new 2013 Legend Alpha 191 (19 footer) with a 200hp Pro XS that should be complete in May or early June. The factory offered some thoughts but I was hoping someone out there already has this set up and can tell me what they are using. It will be a dual console and will have a fairly solid load of gear all of the time. I don't care if I am the fastest on the water but definitley want a good hole shot and midrange, and I do not want to go over the allowed rpm's on the top end. Any suggestions of pitch and name of prop would be great. Thanks.

Good heavens! What a horrible problem - finding the ultimate prop for your machine!

BTW, that was meant as funny because I am so envious you have this kind of problem to solve. I hope someone can help you and I hope you find the right solution. Do report back and do tell us how you enjoy your new ride.

I believe Wrench hit it on the head. Man what a nice boat. For all you that have not seen the Legend, better take a look. That is one sweet machine. One of our good contributors here Phil Stone is on their pro-staff and his boat just rocks.

Phil Stone can hook ya up with a test ride or give you any info you need on these fine boats.870-715-2764

Built right close at Mountain Home, right next to the Bass Cat boys.

These boats are approaching the top of the food chain, not a starter rig. Get your hands on one of them and you have more than done the right thing.

Good Luck

I guess I am really confused?? You lay out that much money for a brand new boat out of the factory, I would expect the engineering would have already been completed. Help me out please!

Were you satisfied with the tires that came on your truck when you bought it?

You make a good point though. The most reasonable "starting point" towards propping it out the way you like it is by running it first with what it comes rigged with and then adjusting from there ....if needed.

I appreciate the comments, and as to whether or not the factory reccommends the best prop or not, who knows? I asked their suggestions but you have to imagine when they test a boat it probably has a light load and not a full load of gear, gas, people, etc. I assumed there would be at least a few guys on here that might have already gone through some of the trials in determining which prop might work best under usual fishing loads and conditions. Most people have become "FURY" advocates, and while I am sure it is a great prop, I doubt it is the best answer for all applications. Sorry if I have taken away from the usual information that is shared on this forum. I only hoped to avoid purchasing the wrong prop since returning them involves additonal time and money.

I don't think you have taken anything away, it's just an impossible question to answer. Unless you can find someone with the exact boat, engine, that carries the same weight and has your desires in a boat.

I would think the factory would recommend something that you would be happy with. It may be a pretty boat but it all comes down to performance when you get it. I would think they would be on top of that.

Cajun, you are right about the Fury not being the be-all, end-all. I know several people with new-ish rig, myself included, who are running the tried-and-true Tempest Plus and are very happy with them.

Congrats on the new rig. Hope you get it set up to your liking.
