I have a 93 powerslot that came with a 3-blade prop. My dealer suggested I try a 4-blade (the only optional balde for a p-slot unit). Any opinions on if a 4-blade is needed with a p-slot? Seems to me a 1.5:1 reduction ought to be enough.

I went from a 3 blade to a 4 blade, for slalom skiing the wake is less. but if you want it for power it is no different.

I would suggest you talk to someone at Acme. www.acmemarine.com. They are very nice and knowledgeable. For a 1:1, and a CNC prop, I'd say go with a 3 blade. However, I can't speak for a boat with gear reduction. They will be able to give you the info to make the right decision.
