Barefoot Prop 197 w/LQ9/LY6
Just a quick question to find out what prop all the footers are running on their 197's.

Call Eric @ OJ. tell him what you want from the prop... i.e. more speed, flatter table, etc.

I talked to Bill at Acme a while back and he had recommended a prop that would have supposedly gained +4 mph on the top end for a MCX/Slot 197. Unfortunately, I can not find that email now, but I want to say it was a #541 or 542.

If a prop could gain that much top end on a 197, it would be pretty impressive. I ended up not going that route as I already had 2 OJ's, we don't 'foot that much any more and I thought the 4 glad OJ might give a softer skier pull.

The 541 and 542 are both for 1" shaft.

What are you currently running?

I have 3 props, 14.5 x 21, 14 x 20 and a 13.7 x 17.5 or 19.5 (I can't remember off hand.) all 4 blade props.

Which size do you prefer? Would be a 19.5 with the slot. What is max MPH/RPM's?

The wuss won't take it past 40mph.

Apparently this thing bolted to the motor is all show and no go!
