I have a 95' Nautique Supersport that we just bought, it has a 3-blade prop but I know a 4 is far better, just wondering what people use with wakeboarding only in mind

look into the OJ XMP Edge prop - it is very popular for wakeboarding applications, especially with ballast

depends on whats on there. look at the prop on the engine side. size, pitch, rotation should be stamped on it. find the pitch you want in the size and rotation that fits your boat.
talk to Karl

you want to look on the bow side of the prop, just realized you're in a vdrive.

4 is not better than 3. see Karl and look at the Acme site as well as OJ site, Acme's on my boat, 3 blades and way better than the 4 blade I bought it with. Nacho has u in the right direction.

I would guess you have a 14 X 16 RC 1" 3-blade on your boat. A 4-blade on your boat will perform much better than the 3-blade, quieter, smoother and better low end. The 4-blades, in my opinion, run better than 3-blades on the gear reduction transmissions, 1.23:1 etc.

Check out; they have a great guide depending on how you weight your boat. Or check out the OJ or Acme websites.

Give Eric a call. He can recommend a prop for you. He stands behind his product. He switched out the one I bought when it didn't perform like I hoped. Thanks Eric.

I went from a four blade OJ (old Legend) to an ACME three blader. I gained low end like a MF'er as well as a couple on the top. Better speed holding and lower RPM cruise. I don't know anything about the new OJ stuff, but I'm sure it is vastly improved. I hear really good things. What I do know is that I couldn't have been more pleased with ACME's service or product.

In the Acme line, the 470 is your prop in a 3-blade. It is the replacement prop. This assumes the 351 (270 hp motor) and RH rotation. If you are heavily weighting, then the got to the 654.

In terms of performance, I doubt you will notice a difference between the 3 and 4 blade props on your boat. With a GPS and instrumentation, maybe, but most likely, you will not notice the difference.
