    The 13/18 is 3 blade so it kinda makes sense you would gain a bit on the top end switching to a 4 blade. Perhaps a slightly weaker holeshot?

    Well i did a test with my 300 and used a 15/22r and compared it to my 13/18. All i will say is a few days latter and my 15/22r is now a 161mm and running a L13 with no spacers.
    The 159mm 260 props are not worth it unless you want to loss holeshot and turn your motor 8800+.

    Same thing I found. I lost 5mph @8k rpm compared to the stock prop. Acceleration was insane but would have to spin it close to 9k to get the speed out of it.

    Maybe on a stock 300. Once you start to mod it and setup the correct 161 prop it will beat the 159 all over.

    100% correct! I did what you suggested and replaced my 159mm Solas with a modified 300 161mm impeller and the performance is incredible. Much Appreciated.
