I have a CSX 220 with a 6.0 375 hp and need to re-prop. I'm running the factory 3 blade but my rpms are at 4k when surfing. I want to switch props to have more power at a lower rpm for surfing. What should I get? 4 blade? What pitch?

14.75 X 15.5 OJ should work fine. It's a 4 blade and since you have 375hp that should be a good all-around prop for you. They say your hull is basically the same as the X-25 so try it.
I run that prop on my X-star with the MCX engine and it works great.
For extra heavy ballast for wakeboarding I run an OJ 14.25 X 14.5 4-blade.

I don't think a 3 blade is a good choice on your boat at all. Are you sure that was the factory prop? What is the size/pitch?
