Sorry, but it doesn't look like the "Marketplace" gets used much, so I figured I'd post here.

I'm looking for a 14x18.5 NIBRAL or Brass 4 blade for a 1 1/8 shaft, LH rotation. If you have one, or even if you have something similar (I've heard the Acme 13.7x17.5? is close) let me know.

My current prop is giving me exactly the performance I want, but it's stainless steel. Pretty, but I'd feel better with a "softer" prop. I'd like to avoid the $400 price tag of new as well. Thanks!

99 X-Star with the LTR motor

What brand is your stainless? OJ or cutter? I believe those are the only two companies that make stainless inboard props. Is it a 14x18.5? I'd trade you if yours was a 14x16.

I'd still think about it if it's an OJ.

not sure of the make, but I'm looking to keep it as a spare.

The company who made the prop will be stamped on the hub or the hub face behind the prop nut.

I HAVE EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR!
Acme #381 13.5 X 17.5 1 1/8 bore LH 4-blade prop NIBRL LIKE NEW asking 310 shipped retails for 388 I know you said 13.7X17.5 but Acme doesn't make 13.7 Their match is a 13.5.
This prop is practically brand new. I had 2 of these and just picked up a new prop. This was my backup. Only seen the water 2 times. It is MINT. Not even a scratch. Was used on my 2000 Mastercraft X-Star. Great upgrade from stock prop. We run about 1500lbs with no problem out of the hole whatsoever with the LTR -1. Have had 2000 in there as well and still no problem.......but our regular weight setup is 1500

New retails for 388.

I also have the newer OJ CNC in a 13.7 X17? 1 1/8 bore (not sure if 17.5 almost 99% that it is 17) that I would be willing to let go for less, but it has a very small ding in it. (Can get you a pic) When I say small I mean small. I didn't notice anything while it was on but it just sits on my shelf so figured I'd throw it out there. I have always run Acme's instead of the OJ but this Oj was very very similar to the Acme. But again I am Acme guy.

What can I say I am a prop fein!!!!!!! always try to give my baby what she needs to stay at the top of her game :)
