Hi all,

Last weekend on our 1996 Response LX, (with the 320hp motor) we bent an Acme prop.  I'm not certain which model as I cannot access it right now, and I didn't have a means of getting close enough to the prop last weekend to check the number.  

Using the Acme website it recommends a 515.  My question is how much difference it makes moving from one prop model to the next (449, 515, 525)?  I've heard that the steeper props create flatter wakes.  Is there much difference?  We're novice skiers, so a flat wake really helps us out.  Otherwise, we do a bit of wakeboarding and tubing, so functionality there is also important - though less so.  Would a 449 or 515 be too steep?  

I appreciate the help.
