Arrow Best Prop

Alright so im new here and i just got my first Mastercraft. Its a Prostar 190 1988 and it needs a new prop, any suggestions? I've got the ford 351 240hp and right now a 3 blade but would like a 4 that can pull a lot but also go fast. Thanks

I would call both Bill at Acme and Eric at OJ and tell them what you're using the boat for.

This may be helpful as well.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Oj Xmp Cnc Props

http://tmcowners.com/teamtalk/showthread.php?t=23870

I have some OJ XMP CNC Props for sale that you may be interested in. The link is above to the original posting. All I have left is the three blades but if you will read up on this 3 blade I would say it is what you are looking for. The price is 265 plus shipping which is alot cheaper than anywhere else. If you have any questions please feel free to email me at jbaggett@tnrmt.com

That boat is going to perform MUCH better with either an Acme #541 or an OJ XMP 13x12.5. Both of those are CNCd 3 blade nibral props. Will give you tons more hole shot and keep the same top end. Plus they are silky smooth. I had the Acme on my '88 and it was the single best improvement I made to the boat besides Perfect Pass.

Brian I had a 13x13 OJ 3 blade on my boat. I just bought an XMP 4 blade 12.5 x 12. Should I notice a big improvement? I haven't put the boat in the water. Hoping to this weekend.

I would imagine so. I have never run the new 4 blades. I would imagine that if Eric recommended it for your application it should perform well. What is your main use of the boat?
