Prop walk with a Max Prop

Don''t know what your problem coould be. I went from a 36'' boat with a folding prop to a 43 with a 3 blade MaxProp and there was a huge reduction in prop walk. I back the 43'' into places I would never have dreamed of trying with the 36''. The only thing I can think of is that you might be overpitched. I also developed the the habit with the 36'' of giving the throttle a good shot of reverse to get the boat moving and then backing off after it starts to move. I do this with the MaxProp and it works beautifully.
