I would contact Eric at OJ Props.
If my words don't make sense, try reading them backwards.

Eric at OJ or Mike at ACME.

For your application, they'll probably tell you a 3-blade cnc made prop is the best. I ordered an OJ and an ACME about a month ago. I gave each vendor the stats on speed at WOT RPM and suggested WOT range. We also talked about my applications (BF and Slalom as well). I had them both send me what they thought would work best. I kept the ACME and sent back the OJ....both were great props but the 1/2" pitch size difference between the two played in favor of the ACME. All things equal....who knows....both are great props.

My spare is a four-blade OJ
