airfreight $105, then i got a $20 shipping discount so $85 prop $530 still alot cheaper than buying here

Was it an apples to apples kind of thing or did you go from a stock OJ to something different in the ACME?

My 06 came with an ACME and I changed to an OJ and got a ton of more hole shot from the OJ. But mine is and apples to oranges deal as I changed prop size.

How long did the air freight take from when you ordered it?

Pretty much apples to apples with some cider mixed in. 5 props, 2 oj, 2 acme, 1 federal.

I'm wondering if I'm going to get a new prop should I upgrade? Even bigger?

The 14.25 X 14 is a good jump prop while I would suggest the 13.7 X 15 for slalom. This is the set up Freddy Kruger uses on his 6.0 powered TT boat, a jump prop for him and a slalom prop for Karen.
