Been very satisfied with the stock 14x18 prop on my '88 ProStar/Slot. Wanted to pick up a spare and was looking for an education on the pitch. Found a 3 blade OJ 14x17 and a 4 blade SS 14x20.

Welcome.

Pitch is how much the blade cuts through the water in one rotation. As a general rule, less pitch will give you more low end/hole shot, but you may sacrifice a mph or two in top end. With a CNC'd prop, sacrificing top end might not be as much of an issue.

Send a PM to EJ OJPROP he should be able to give you an education on props. Try out one of his XMPs. The one I am testing now is very nice.

Another source is Bill at Acme. 1-888-661-ACME. He is a great guy as well and is also more than capable of getting you the correct prop for your application.
