  1. Just bought a 2017 25 LSV with 6.2L 450. Came with Standard 17 x 17 - 2969 Prop. I'm at 850' and plan to surf with 8 people. Prop suggestions would be appreciated.
  2. As the title says, I bought a New Acme 515 prop for my 1994 Flightcraft Sportster, The old Mr. Minus 13x13.5 has a few nicks where we dragged over some rocks in a shallow spot, so I wanted to get it cleaned up and balanced. I bought the Acme Weekend saver kit which has the C-clamp Prop Puller, and I have tried Everything to get the prop free. As far as I can tell this Prop has probably been on there since it was new or close to it. I loosened the Nut 2 turns, and the applied force with the puller, then cranked on the puller as much as I could with a wrench..Nothing. I've tried hitting the bac
  3. I've had the Response LX for about 5 years. It came with a 4 bladed stainless prop on it, and has the 330HP Mercruiser black scorpion direct drive. The Mercruiser has a rev limiter at 5180 RPM, or thereabouts (it stutters around 5180, maybe it's 5200). We're running pretty hard into the rev limiter, I think we can hit it on about 3/4 throttle. We get 72kph (45mph) at the rev limiter with 1 person aboard, about half fuel, not much spare weight in the boat. It feels like we're giving up quite a bit of top speed there. I've looked at the prop and it doesn't have any clear identifyin
  4. I’m posting this in case it helps anyone else. We live at about 4,000 feet elevation, and we bought a 2019 23 LSV that came with the Acme 2419 prop. We were having trouble keeping speed with full ballast (including two rear pnp bags). I called Acme and ended up switching to the 3093, and the difference has been very noticeable. We can now keep surf speed with full ballast, and the wave is much better in general. I was hesitant to make the switch, but I have no regrets. Note: we don’t do any skiing, so I can’t really comment on loss of top speed.
  5. Had a 4 bladed prop on boat with LS1 when I bought it. Threw a blade off prop. Pulled prop off and dropped prop and key to bottom of lake. Any idea what size key ? Was curious what size prop they might of had too. We have a 3 blade to put on that they left to try but really liked what was on it.

    Prop Puller

    Hello everyone, I am looking for a propellor puller for a 4 blade prop. Does anyone know where I could purchase one reasonably priced? I do not need the kit, rather, just the prop puller. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
  7. Hey Team - looking to change props to improve performance and manage surfing a little more easily. Here's what I'm running: 2014 Axis T22, Monsoon 330 currently running 1235 prop Ballast setup: Stock hard tanks, Wake Makers dual rear 900's, bow sack 400. (we don't always max the weight out depending on the size of the crew and how the wake it looking) Manual Wedge: down Low Elevation: 1500 ft about sea level. We MOSTLY surf but don't want to completely loose all top speed. So far the recommendations have said: Acme 2315 (wakemakers), Acme 2937 (Acme's websit
  8. Props are discussed offer but I am looking for someone with a identical set up, or close, running a different prop. 2018 23 lsv 410 raptor. 80 feet elevation (so basically zero) stock ballast. Bow, center, rear +plug and play 540s. 150 lbs lead in bow 100 lbs left side ski locker against back seat wall currently running a Acme 2249. They called it the high altitude prop. I have no issues with this prop ( except higher rpm than desired rpm NOISE) I can put 7 people plus full ballast, wedge and no issues. It’s a champ. i can run full ball
  9. I recently purchased a 2019 Axis A22 with a Monsoon 409 motor. The prop on the boat is slightly bent causing vibration especially with added weight. The current prop is an ACME 2249. WakeMakers recommends ACME 2247. The only difference is the cup of the 2247 is .150 versus the 2249 that is .105. What kind of difference will this make for speed versus wave? Is there a better prop recommendation for overall performance.
  10. Just got a 2005 Response LXi and during water test noticed a hum and vibration between 30 and 36 mph then it goes away. No hum or vibration under 30mph. Had a pre-purchase mechanical and electrical inspection done at the local Malibu dealer. I specifically asked to have them check for the hum/vibration. They indicated shaft seal is good, shaft itself is good, prop is pristine (Acme 13X12.5) and they say tracking fins look properly aligned. Their explanation was hum and vibration caused by the tower (tube style). The boat had previous damage to the hull, prop/rudder/shaft and fins.
