I think that's the prop I currently have on my boat - works great for us, but we don't run any ballast.

I have this prop on my 91 PS190 and I love it. Would pick this one up if I had a couple hundred laying around...:)

It's a great slalom prop too. Has a lot of cup .150. I believe it's best to have a pretty goodly amount of tourque.

You have the PowerSlot I presume?

I do have a slot. :D Also have about 325hp pushing it. I have the 3 blade version of this prop as a spare. I like them both but the 4 blade is smoother.

Looking at this prop I think it has been in the water which, in and of itself is no big deal as long as it's never been dinged, but he states it's brand new. :( I've seen new props from ACME and OJ and none have been spotted like that. That's how they look after a few outings. But it's still probably a great prop.

I'm currently running a 4 blade OJ (non CNC) on my '83 Slot. (240 HP) Would I notice a difference with this prop?

When I called ACME to ask about which prop for my 351W with PS (1987 PS 190) they recommended the 275. Otherwise, I'd be all over this. Just had to know how it'll react on my boat.

I'm no prop expert by any means. And I'm not gonna say how much better ACME is than OJ. I think they both make great props. CNC props are, on average, better. Doesn't mean you weren't lucky and got the perfect prop already. Check WOT, probably around 4500. Whatever owners manual says. Mine is about 4700 but I've put a little more torque and HP in mine. Is it smooth? Particularly the hole shot.
If mine was still the original 240hp I'd have the 381 ACME. It has .105 cup. And I can see where that 275 ACME with .080 cup would be good too.

Yea I have a 351 slot as well with a three blade and am wondering if I would notice a difference that is worth 200 bucks as well.
