View Full Version : Ideal Prop for Mobius LS

I purchased my Mobius LS in 2007 with the upgraded 4 blade prop. When it was delivered it still had a 3 blade on it so I traded the 3 blade for a 4 blade with the dealership.
Since then I have tried a variety of different 4 blade props and none seem to be quite right. In fact, my boat has never been able to go faster than about 34 mph which seems quite a bit slow.

Does anyone know what the ideal prop I should have is?

Our altitude here is about 3,300 feet.

Thanks for any help.

My 2004 Mobius LS came with an OJ 13 X13. I bought an ACME 543 as spare and I now use it exclusivley. You should be running some where around 40 MPH.

I have an 07 LS and it runs 43mph with the stock 3-blade at 1500ft elevation. Give ACME and OJ a call and they will know the right prop for your situation.

p.s. I bought an ACME #913 earlier in the year but haven't had a chance to try it yet. It came on recommendation of the people at ACME for a wakeboard and surf specific application

I posted In the past that I had a 12x12prop. In actuality I have a 13x13 3 blade prop at about 4500rpm I do 40 mph which for me 6'3 250 is a bit slow for barefooting. I would love another 3 mph without mashing the throttle down. I would surely give up a holeshot for it.

Dan,
We have 2008 LS with stock 3 blade prop, boat mostly at 3900 ft and top end is 42-43 at 4500rpm.

I own a '06 LS/325EFI with the stock 13/13 prop. I top out at 44-45 with a half load of fuel and 3 people on board @ 4,400 rpm.

I am currently investigating prop options myself. We will be using the stock ballast, when wakeboarding as I am in the process of installing the ballast system myself (orig owner opted out of factory ballast set-up). The boat also does pulling duty for several slalom skiers as well, so I'm looking at the ACME 13x12 or 13x11.5 three blade CNC.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

We have a 2007 Mobius LS, with the wake board prop I htink 11.75 X 12.5 I am good for about 37. I bought an OJ 13x13 four blade and I can et about 43 mph. The four blade is much quieter and smooth out of the hole as well.

Search zegm's posts for "prop". He got a new one recommended by OJ for his 2008 LS and loves it.

Just wanted to add another thumbs up for the ACME 543 for the Möbius LS. I just got my 2004 Möbius LS on Monday and after seeing the condition of the prop i found this thread and then called ACME and asked spoke with Bill Weeks over there who said it would be a good prop for me here in SE MI so i ordered it from Nettles who had it dropped shipped from ACME and installed the prop on Wednesday. I tested it out this weekend and compared to the 4-blade OJ it came with, the difference in performance is night and day. So much smoother, it has a great whole shot and my top speed increased from 34 to 38mph with 800lbs of ballast and 3 big ass dudes, including myself on the boat.

I'm with h2o I have a 2008 Mobius LS which had the stock 11.75 x 12.5 OJ 3 blade. Horrible growl & vibration when taking off. I actually thought I had something bent or mis-aligned it was so bad. The beginning of this year we switched to a 13 x13 4 blade OJ and it was like a new boat, no vibration, no growl and butter smooth. It also helped with the rooster tail behind the boat and the dip in between the wakes for slalom skiing. I did lose 1-2 mph top end now 40-42 mph, but then again this hull is not deigned for top end, and there is alot more torque for getting the boat going with the ballast full for surfing. You also have to remember that the 2006 and up Mobius LS hulls are the same as the LSV but DD and the 2005 and back Mobius LS are Outback hulls with different graphics.
