3 blade or 4 blade ACME

OK - dinged my prop over the weekend and going to get another one (get the ding fixed and keep it as a spare). Boat is an X-9 with 310 Predator engine and was using a 3 blade ACME 13" diam 12 pitch. My question - is that prop best for skiing? Our focus has changed - we spend 80% on the slalom stick and wondering if a 4 blade would be better (since we don't use the ballast very often). The reason I asked is I put on my other spare (4 blade OJ - the stock prop) - and the wake seemed a little smaller. Any X-9 or 209 owners out there who can provide input? Thanks!!
