what prop for a 95 echelon

Recommended Posts

What is the best prop for a 95 echelon. The one on the boat now is a 13x13 and ever since someone repaired it or re shaped it the wake has been super hard...like hitting a wall.

Thanks

I have a 14x 14 three blade on my echelon, the wake is great with a few people in the boat

I put this on my 95 Echelon with a carb. It replaced a brass non cnc 3 blade 13x13 (cvp I believe). The 4 blade cupped cnc nibral helped immensely with the hole shot and the wake was not as tall but wider and softer. plus not a bad price.

Is the prop on your boat SS or cvp? Just switching to a newer CNC machined prop will do wonders.

The current prop I believe is forged and the motor is the 265 MPI.

Was there any change in the rpm at 34-36 mph?

Personally I'd stay away from Michigan Wheel props. They're heritage is with the slower turning props, and our experience supported that arena as the best place to leave them.

The Echelon would have a CVP 13x13 stainless as original OEM. This would be comparable to an ACME 13x12 or 13x11.5 on your 265hp Echelon. If 90% of your skiing is slalom, I'd go with the 11.5 pitch. If your use is also looking for top end speed you may want to try the 13x12, provided you can still get at least 4800 rpm from it. A 13x11.5 with additional cup would likely also work for that.

Hope that helps -

We ski probably 99% of the time....don't care about top end speed. So running the 13x11.5 would increase rpm in the 30-36mph range?
