Curious what it does to the -22 hump, assuming you ski.....

I wouldn't worry about anything. That new prop will be so amazing. Seriously

havent ran the prop yet or skied behind a 541, but ive heard it softens up the wake a bit and helps a bit with rooster tail.

The 541 will be an awesome prop for your boat. When I put mine on It felt like I was driving a new boat with 50 more horsepower!

I know we have discussed this but why the Acme 541 over these from OJ?

13 X 13 LC 1" FORCE 4-blade
13 X 11.5 LC 1" XMP 3-blade

Getting a new prop this summer - I know I can try them out from OJ... but really looking for testimonials... 541 gets good press here.

You'll love the 541 it's night and day,

Mike I had 13x13 force 4 blade for a number of years it was good but doesn't compare to the 541, more hole shot and more top end with less rooster tale its a win win, can't comment on the xmp I haven't tried that one out.

I am going to order a Acme 541 for my 93 Stars and Stripes today.... Does it make that much of a difference?

Had the same experience putting the 541 on my 92. Worth every penny.

Does it make that much of a difference?My favorite characteristic about the 541 is that it takes out a lot if vibration (CNC process). A well balanced prop. Performance gains or satisfaction depends on the prop pitch and your preferences. The 541 13x13x3 made me happy.

Not a direct answer to your question, but I have done a side by side of the 541 versus the 13x12 XMP. Write up of my impressions here (http://www.tylerskiclub.com/proptest.pdf).

The XMP held speed in turns better by a slight degree and had a bit softer pull for the skier. Out of the hole performance went to acme.

I picked up about 300-400 rpm's and 2 mph with greater hole shot, less rooster, so yea it's that much of a difference...

Realize that acme 3 blade has the blade surface area of a 4 blade...
