I'm looking for a back up prop, and have found a few on wakeworld's classifieds. I'm not sure what size or how many blades. I would like a little more power out of the holeshot. My boat is 2006 mobius lsv with upgraded engine.

really depends on what prop you have on now. if you don't have the wake prop, 14.25 X 14 OJ, then go ahead and order that prop and put it on and keep the stock prop as your backup. (that's what i did)

trust me your holeshot will improve.

I bought this boat private party with only 33 hours. I have not upgraded the prop so I'm assuming it's the stock prop. My boat is in storage so I cant just walk outside and check it out, but I would bet it's the stock. Unless it can be upgraded from the factory? It's the gravity games edition if that helps. Taking a trip in April to Alabama I figured it would be a good idea to have a backup

all the newer mobius are going to already have a 4 blade prop (14 x 18) I believe.

More than likely that is what you have. Do a little research on this forum and you will see how many people are happy with it.

I ordered mine from skidim.

I have had no problems with mine other then it's a litlle slow out of the holeshot. I know that I should have a backup on my boat.

i had no problems with my factory prop at all. I spoke with a special person (BR) at Skier's Choice and was told the wake prop was the way to go.

Yes, better holeshot, even when running all the extra weight. Plus I have the original as a backup.

I run with an Acme 3 blade and use my stock OJ as a back up.
