When I said priorities, I meant what are your priorities in a prop?

As in, top end speed, hole shot etc.

If your redline is 5400 and you can currently run up to 5300 then your pitch is about perfect.

If you're looking for better hole shot, planing etc, typically props with more blades are better. If you decide to change to a prop with a different number of blades, you'll also have adjust your pitch accordingly.
