Default Need prop recommendation for 50" Apache

Hi guys, I am looking to purchase a prop for my new Apache and would like to know what you recommend. I've heard a 6717/3 would be a good start but wanted to hear what others recommend. Thanks!

Specs:
Apache 50
Bonzi BZx2 ([email protected])
Stinger
6" Extended rudder

Me and Martin agree again!! For mono hulls I have yet to find anything better than a 7015/3, the 2 blade is a bit quicker, but at the loss of stability the 3 blade gives. And for fast acceleration - this is the prop for you.

hi again
marts right i run both props on my 50 and my 58 apache the 70/15/2 gives you very fast speed out of the corners and a good top end
the 70/15/3 a bit slower out of the corners but faster top end so if your after your 50mph ide go for the 70/15/3
hope this helps

hi all,

7015/3 gets my vote, brutal accelleration and a good top end on the 29 zen.
