The 5 blade hype seems to have faded. I don't think they are all they were originally made out to be. I have no idea if it will fit, but from what I've heard, the acme 2315 is the prop to have when you're running big weight. It's a 15x12 prop. I haven't heard of anyone running one on a mastercraft. At the last tournament I went to one of the malibu vps had one on his mxz and the nautique rep had one on his g23. You will probably lose a lot on the top end, but it should pull out of the hole like none other.

Got the 5 blade to start this year and preforms better than the stock prop 05 x-30 MCX. I'm at 6000 ft and the boat would struggle when loaded with ballast with the old prop. Pulls much better now, very happy with the change.
