Damaged prop. Advice on replacement.

I know this subject has come up alot, but I need some advice. Looking at changing my prop after damaging it. I'm fairly new to boating, but am looking at a prop more suited for wakeboarding. Don't really know what the size of the prop means in terms if it's bigger it's better.
Any reputable sellers on this site? Any and all advice is welcomed.
Thanks in advance.

I don't know a lot about this topic but I know you will need the current size. It is stamped on the Prop Shaft, close to the the locking nut.

I'm running the 14.5 x 14.25 on mine and like it (alot). Some people like to have a little more top end, but I'm OK with a 40mph boat. Running the MCX, it could pull stumps.

The standard prop on Mastercraft boats (right now) is OJ. EJ, of OJ is a TT member.

Go directly to the man that knows, Eric Johnson @ http://www.ojprops.com/contact_us or contact him by pm, EJ OJPROP, http://www.mastercraft.com/teamtalk/member.php?u=1537
Be prepared to give him any info he may need like, current prop info off the hub, baseline numbers of the speeds and RPM's for the current prop, boat model and year, engine size, transmission ratio, function (skiing, barefooting, surfing, boarding, tubing, etc.), ballast use, fuel load, gear, nominal # of passengers, etc. He will need it to determine the best prop for your application.

OJ can help you get your prop sorted. How did you damage your prop?

Make sure you have your shaft tested to see if there is any bend it it. Even a slight bend can wreak havock and other parts of your drivetrain
