VTX surf + barefoot prop


Recommended Posts

VTX with 409. I slam it for surfing and wakeboarding. I occasionally barefoot.

I want to buy a spare prop. I currently have the stock ACME 1939. 14x15.5

I love the way my boat lurches out off the water. Is there a better prop without giving up top speed? It doesn't look like there is a comparable OJ prop, is there?

We have the following;

905 - 14.75 X 15.25

912 - 14.75 X 15.75

920 - 14.75 X 17

Would think the 912 would be the place to start.

Thanks for the feedback. What would be the advantage of 912 over the ACME1939? It will lose bottom end acceleration, correct? Will it gain significant top end? What's the effect of larger diameter at higher speeds?

I don't think it will lose much if any low end, the larger diameter would help with that. The larger diameter will not hurt the top end. Would guess a 1-2 MPH gain.
