Smile Best Performing Prop for LY6 Engine

I have spent weeks testing different props on my 2007 PS197 with LY6 engine and 1.22:1 trans. The winner is: ACME #1279 3-blade. This prop outgunned all the others (OJ 470, OJ 438, ACME 1281) in every category: best hole shot, highest top end, and lowest RPM at 34MPH (saves fuel). My PS197 rocks now.

glad you found a prop that works for you. how is the wake compare? also, did you actually talk with Eric and get his opinion on props or did you just order props to test without speaking directly with him? either way, Im happy you found a prop that works good for you. How is the pull from the skiers view?

I did my research: spoke to my dealer, Bill from Acme, Eric from OJ, and the prop guys from Mastercraft.
