Not to bash... stiletto are probably the lowest end of stainless props so even though it will run you could get better performance from other brands.

second usually switching from 3 to 4 blades you need to go down in pitch. I would think you would need 17 or even 15 for a f 150 to make the rpm’s. There are plenty of guys on here that run 4 blades could probably help with exact pitch numbers they have.

I run a 3 blade mercury enertia 19 pitch on a 200 sho on my 2200 trs. Good lift and good speed

I agree.. Too much prop..     What year is the hull ?   The weight has changed over the years, and the best prop advice will be year-specific.

How do you like the Enertia? What else have you run Merc. wise before you went with this prop? I have a line on one, but am hesitant. I'm currently running a Bravo 1 FS in 22p.

Sorry to jump in with no real advise, OP. The OFX4 is a great prop, I do know that!

I love the enertia when compared to the prop that came on my boat. The prop that was on the boat when I bought it would not get the boat out of the water. The spray on plane was even with the console. The prop I have now gets the boat up and it runs nice with top speed I have see is 52 and I have a t top. I ran a tempest plus as well. That was going to be the prop I kept but the prop had been worked and was cut thin on the edges. I bumped a stick (not s log) and bent the edge. If I were going to buy a prop it would probably be the tempest plus. But the one I have performs so well I have not bothered to get a tempest plus in 19 pitch.
