Looking for opinions on the best prop for my 85 SS 351 No power slot. Would like all around, smooth performance.

Acme 541 without a doubt. It did tremendous things for my 86' Skier 19 (w/o powerslot)

What do you consider a deal? I have new ones, I'll check to see if I have any "used" ones.

I have an 85 as well. What kind of improvements can be expected with the 541 or a similar prop. Better holeshot? Better top end? We currently use our boat for a little bit of everything. Wakeboarding to Barefooting.

I would suggest trying our 13 X 11.5 LC 1" XMP 3-blade part #310, 13 X 12 LC 1" XMP 3-blade part #314 or 12.5 X 12 LC 1" XMP 4-blade part# 404.

The answer to your questions are yes and yes. Should make the boat better all around. Give Eric at OJ or Acme a call and have them send you a prop to try.
