So after some long phone calls i have pulled the trigger on a new prop for my MCX powered 08 X-Star.

People have gone back and forth on 4 blade vs 5 blade.

Based on my needs for good all around performance and need for some loaded up sessions i decided to go with the new ACME 2271 15" x 15.75 4blade prop with a 105 cup.

I am told the performance will be better than my 14.5 x14.75 prop currently.

Anyone give this prop a shot yet?

Interesting, but have you run with this prop as yet, as Im looking at options for my X2. Im curious cos this ACME prop you purchased the pitch is larger, will affect out of the hole but by how much...keen to hear your results
