What prop should I be using on my pathfinder22? Advice please.

I have a 2004 pathfinder22 tournament edition with second station full tower, 2004 225 hp vmax. I currently have a yamaha 13 3/4 x 22 pitch four blade prop on the motor. I get the feeling I'm not getting the performance I should be (I know the tower's weight and wind resistance slows her down but). Just a feeling.. Any advice on a different prop. I want to get a spare anyhow. Thanks in advance.

    I'm not quite sure. I think only 4600...? I will see when I take it out this week sometime.

    Very simple answer - for all around cruising, decent top end and load carrying - a Turbo Ultima 4. For best top end, a Turbo Lightning. Got lots of them around here.

    I had a 2005 2200V with a Yamaha 200 VMAX with a Mercury Revolution 4. That blade was great for hole shots, quickly getting up on a plane and top end speed. On a calm day, I could go 57 mph on the GPS.
