    I'm wanting to know the best prop I should get for my Blaster. I only ride surf and nothing else so bottom end is a must.
    Blaster 1
    701 motor with aftermarket head
    Dual 44mm carbs with aftermarket filters and reed spacer
    Carbon reeds
    Factory B pipe
    Aftermarket water box (baffled)
    Mag 144 12 veined large hub pump
    Hull is Carter B nose and rear.

    Been told a Hooker 9/15 would be the best but I've read that some people get slippage so move to a 10/16.

    This is what I've found so far but your feedback would be great.

    9/15 (for anything from a stock 701 to a strong limited set up)

    10/16 (for the more healthy version of a limited with porting, big carbs, etc)

    11/17 (for maximum hook up with added HP, or a ski doing closed course racing, like an ’08-’09 SuperJet, or a Blaster doing spec class racing)

    Hey mate i run a large hub 11/17 in a rockered blaster 12 vein pump
    good hook up as i run in surf only, the 9/15 in a blaster runs out of legs too quick when you are half way up the wave and don't get the launch hight

    Solas concord large hub 11/17 without a doubt. Have got a collection of props including 9/15 , 10/16, 11/17, 12/18, 15/19, and 11/17 is easily the best but the 12/18 would b fine aswell. If u want to get more bottom with either prop without losing any top end get the prop back cut so it's just clear of the stator section. Mine is back cut so far that the first 2 numbers of the pitch stamped on the hub are now gone.theres only like a a mil or 2 clearance off the stator.
