Which 5 blade prop and where to buy?
 
I currently have an acme 1235 on my boat. (07 supra 22 /w 340hp - 3500ft elev).
We ride with ~1500-2000lbs wakeboard and 2500 wakesurf weight.

Much difference between the 1235 and the 5blades performance wise - I hear not as great holeshot but better top end and fuel economy. Real world what are we talking - how much lower RPM, higher speed, longer planing times?

Wanting to pickup another so I have a spare - looking at the new 5 blades by OJ and Acme.
Any real world tests between the two or experiences. Prices seem abit better ~100 on the OJ.

Also where is a good place to pickup a prop and prop puller?

know boat stuff isnt cheap, but I'm really trying to figure out how a prop puller is supposed to cost $100..:confused:

I have the OJ and love it. Hole shot isn't as great when compared to the most aggressive props out there, but fully loaded down (3600lbs) on an Axis a20 and I sit at 3100rpm @ 22mph. Top end is 41, but I really don't have to drive anywhere for good water.
