I just talked to OJ about my 4 blade prop, it's 13 x 13. I am looking for more consistent speed while loaded down for wake boarding. They recommended a 13x11 3 blade. their reasoning was the new 3 blade had the same surface area as my 1998 4 blade :confused: and the different pitch will make it hold speed better when loaded down. I don't know about the 3 blade I don't get warm fuzzes. Any comments

You called the professionals for advice and they, the professionals gave it to you. If you wanted the warm fuzzies, you should have called Martha Stewart!

Sorry, I didn't mean to sound so harsh, after I thought about what I posted, I said " OH ship what have I done". I hope he doesn't call Martha and she tells him to hang a dozen roses on his propshaft and carry a Banana Pudding in his dash! :uglyhamme :uglyhamme :uglyhamme

Perfect Pass is always a solution. Especially if a wife is involved. Don't ask me how I learned this.

Second on G-Man, no more throwing your wet gloves at the Mrs.

The Acme 541 makes my boat run like a scalded cat! Ask those who've ridden in it, it's one fast 275hp TBI boat. Great throttle response at all speeds, killer hole shot, and no problems holding any speed. Go for it! You'll like it, I promise!

Ditto on the Acme 541. Put one on last summer and couldn't believe the difference. Great hole shot, improved wake at 22 (smaller bump), smoother all with no loss in top end.

I third the Acme 541, world of difference over stock.
