There is no best one - depends on what you want to do with it. I generally recommend staying with 3 blade CNC props not 4 blade

For ACME the 541 is "generally" the one to go with. Unless you carry a lot of ballast in which case you would likely want a 543 - they're basically the same prop with the 543 having 1/2" less pitch - meaning the one tries to push the water back 11.5" and the other 12" per rotation. Think about it like shifting down a gear on your bike to make it a little easier to pedal. With a 541 you might find it sluggish out of the hole if you carry a lot of people in the boat and tend to carry ballast. There is also a 1229 prop which goes all the way to 11" of pitch which would be your two gears down.

For OJ you have 4 prop options to consider they should be the 316 and 320 - you'll note that they're all 13" props left hand, 1" shaft. Acme is using a .08 cup and OJ a .09, but in application you have to remember that while these boats came with 13x13 props, the CNC props basically push more water and are smoother. Of the brands Eric @ OJ is on here frequently.

316 – 13 X 11.5 LC .090
320 – 13 X 12 LC .090

541 is the go to prop for 1:1 lightweight boats. You'll gain hole shot and top end speed. If you want to add a bunch of weight get the 543. Slightly more hole shot but you might over rev and lose some top speed from the 541.
