So I read the ad\article on wakeboardingmag.com about dialing in your prop for what we do best.
(for some reason they just yanked the article, have no idea why)

Anyway, there were saying how these factory props aren't as dialed for big ballast haulers like some of us. Nothing I didn't really know. But they did say you can contact Acme and OJ, toss them your specs, ballast+peeps, etc. and they can help you dial your prop. So I did.

(fyi - 01 supra launch 315ph, DD 1:1, always sacked out to 2700lbs, usually 3-4 peeps avg 160lbs)

The response i got kind of surprised me. I run a OJ 4 blade 13x13. Acme suggested their 913-13.00X10.50VL3B 1.00 .080 cup three blade nibral propeller. I had no idea a 3 blade would shove me out of the hole better!

Has anyone made this kind of switch? This kind of goes against my logic. But does it work well? Can you tell a difference after you did the swap?

Thanks guys
