Prop walk with a Max Prop

I''m confused also, I went from a 3 blade fixed to a MaxProp (at a considerable premium) and expected to see some change but no luck. Thanks for advice (gun n'' coast) have tried it as I used to do with fixed blade but she is really walking before I''m making sternway. re: pitch, based on the boat''s performance in forward I am underpitched and need to increase it (PYI concurs with this assessment). Still confused but will have to re-assess after pitch change.

Thanks for the advice sailmc.
