Talking Which Acme prop for 1987 - 1990 PS 190 w/Powerslot?

Looking to get a new Acme prop for my 1987 PS 190 w/Powerslot. I've searched the forum pretty extensively and it seems that most are using #275 and #381, although I've also seen mention of #817.

Is there one prop that you can't go wrong with?

I will be interested to see what the responses are because I have the exact same set up. To those that post replies regarding the props, I would be curious what gains/losses you experienced with these props in regards to bottom end and top speed. I have been thinking about buying another prop for a while too.

Well guys, after posting this thread I hopped on eBay and saw a brand new Acme #275 for $300 shipped.

I pounced and will let you know, in about 4 months, how my performance changes. I am pretty sure Acme recommends the #275 or #381 for our hull, 351 with 1:5 transmission.

Has anyone had the opportunity to compare the #275 v. #381 on the water?

I had the #381 on my old '85 Powerslot. It was a great prop but did produce a bit of prop wash that was rough when skiing at 22 off. When I got the boat someone had put a 13x13 on it! I swapped for a 14x20 that I got cheap. Was a but much to push so I quickly got the #381 and it was on there until I sold the boat. Great prop for the powerslot.
