Do you have a stainless steel prop or an aluminum prop?Aluminum will flex and tend to run your motor at higher RPM's, while stainless will not give and will give you better performance. Pitch also has alot to do with your RPM's. I believe the higher pitch props will give you more top end performance but also could raise your RPM's, and the lower pitch a quicker lift off on to plane. Check your engine for the RPM rating at WOT. I'm not sure about out board motors my I/O is between 4200 and 4600 at WOT.Some marine dealers will let you experiment with different pitches until you find the correct one. Just a little food for thought. Check out Mikes Marine on jefferson.
Good Luck!
