Highest top speed with a 60R

Who's had the highest top speed with a Mercury Racing 60R?   the bigfoot case lets you access a wide variety of prop options so what is everyone getting ?     Some of the recent speed successes with the 60R I've been apart of is using it as a tiller on a Legendcraft Ambush 1756 @ 43mph  and most recently on the Lake and Bay 17 foot skiff during the Florida skiff Challange @ 52 mph.

I know the Tuff 16 can get 60 MPH with a Formula 60, but the lower gears in the 60R might hold the top speed back a little.

Yes the 2.33 gears do present a challenge sometimes but it also does open up different prop selection being a 15 spline instead of 13 spline like the regular 60.    That new tuff 16 is fantastic !!
