i'm able to consistently get ~150-200%, and 300% with decent luck and perfect timing, back in the day.
Back in the days, you had a dozen prop pools to hop. The more pools, the higher your profits.
But I think you guys are talking about different %s. With perfect timing you can get an almost arbitrary high PPS on the shares you hop with. Just hop away earlier and your PPS on those shares will go up. But your total profit while hopping just 1 prop pool with your own hashes
will go down, and its not likely you will get >135% average hopping just a single pool, particularly when its being hopped by 4x its regular hashrate. Thats what the other poster meant I think. I doubt you'll get much more than 110% on pools like bitclockers.
But if you could indeed hop with leased shares
from gpumax, then thats not the number to look at. Its the PPS for the shares you hop with. And in theory you can achieve an almost arbitrary high PPS on those, limited only by your ratio of the pools hashrate. But thats assuming you can time them perfectly, which I think we all agree, you cant, not with gpumax.
perhaps though, some other payout schemes are somehow vulnerable to sudden and massive changes in hashrate? Maybe organofcorti or Meni Rosenfeld could comment on that? I just saw on a thread on slush regular miners complaining they are losing on short rounds. Could of course be due to regular hoppers, but maybe its doable with gpumax too. I dont know exactly how Slushes score based system works
Only a certain type of pools can be boosted, with exact timing. Kinda like manual-hop, but slightly different.
if i still have some shares left after boosting, and don't feel like staying, derpbit is a pretty good runoff pool.
Good Point p4Man but I have to ask - when was "back in the days?" last summer? lol
like, sometime in feb, lol, when gpumax just started.

i quit using it because it's getting way unreliable.
How is "consistently get ~150-200%" unreliable?
the purchase system is unreliable.
sometime it starts within 20 minutes, sometimes it's 9 hours later.
