WTB - ACME #911 13 x 10.5 Prop

Recommended Posts

I've heard that the direct drives tranny doesn't handle 4 blade props well, and I should stick to a High Performance 3 blade (Acme #525, #653 or #911 I heard is even better at 13x10.5. My boat is a 2003 23' Wakesetter XTI)

What are some opinions on this, and the best prop for wake shaping, wakeboarding, and surfing only? I'm not much of a speed demon, I'm all about the boarding and the wake.

Thanks in advance.

I have never heard that the direct drive tranny doesn't handle 4 blade props well. My first boat was a direct drive (non-malibu). It came with a three (3) blade. I put a 4 blade on it and what a difference. Boat just seemed much smoother. Much less prop vibration.
