further inquiries has me looking at an ACME prop. Im sure there are ACME v OJ pros & cons, but as an option this has been specd as a replacement for my OJ OJ 14.25 x 14.75 V is the ACME ACME 1479 14.5 x 14.25 150 cup. For you prop gurus, any thoughts as I am not wanting better holeshot, but as I said a couple of more mph would be great...not wanting more revs

Does anyone have any reports on this, and can anyone clarify how a bigger diameter v smaller pitch affect performnace

the 15" dia prop may be of benefit from what I've read, will there be any clearance issues with the larger diameter, especially with the trailer clearance loading/unloading?

after many reviews and talking to ppl, I am deciding to go with the ACME 1479, this will give me 3mph more at WOT. And have my damaged prop fixed and keep as a spare, thanks everyone for feedback, and Venetrex for the input on the 1479
