A 4 blade will give you better hole shot , the tempest is for speed

If your prop is a Tempest Plus, try removing one PVS plug at a time and see if your hole shot improves. How many RPM's are you able to turn the 25?

Swap the tempest for a 25 Trophy.

Your max rpm's should be about 5,800 with a 200. a 1" pitch change should give you a about a 200 rpm increase. You need to know your max rpms before re-proping. But, yes. A 24 Will give you a better holeshot. As will a 23" 4 blade. You will loose 1-2 mph with a 4 blade but handling and hole shot will improve. I'd stick with a Tempest especially if you have hydraulic steering. The major benefits of a Tempest are, Bow lift, top end speed, and higher engine mounting heights. As previously stated, try holeshot with 1 or 2 plugs removed from tempest.
