Laser 2 Prop for Vector

I see where you say a 26 pitch SMALL HUB laser 2 is a good prop for a Merc 200 on a Vector. I will be putting the motor on next week and will need a prop. My ? is will this prop not make the motor turn to many RPMs? 

Thanks Craig

 

Craig,

    For brute top speed, yes, these are some choices that would be faster. The 26 will get you great overall performance and still run 80+ at around 6800 RPM. With the oil system still installed, I would stop there for RPM. It would take a special driver to run the boat that fast anyway. Make sure you have solid mounts and don't be afraid to let that Merc rev to the mid 6000 RPM's. You'll love the performance.
