Ok so I think I’ve spent the last 30+ 45min reading thru 5+ threads and maybe 20+ pages of post about different props. 3 blade, 4 blade, for DD or v-drive, OJ props and or ACME props… changing the size of the wakes… and then trailer problems with the prop hitting the trailer I guess…
I have a 2002 LS DD, it has the factory 3 blade on it. I’m looking to maybe upgrades and if anything just to have a spare on hand if need be! I personally don’t ski; I’ll be doing a lot of wakeboarding and surfing with some kneeboard and some tubing.
Can anyone give me the “short story” or answer on recommending me in the right direction for a good prop???

Short answer is call up either OJ or Acme props and tell them what you have, what you want to do, and let them recommend the right prop.

I ran the stock 13x13 on mine (2000 O/B) for skiing, surfing, and wakeboarding. No problems at all and did fine for all.My Mom said I'm not allowed to get wet!

I bought an upgraded 3 blade for my 02 direct drive outback last year I love it. The boat pulls so much smoother, is an absolute monster out of the hole even with 1200 lbs of ballast + 4 guys and I didn't lose any top end. I just called ACME, told them my boat and the amount of weight I run and they hooked it up. I couldn't be happier. It was really a win/win/win and I haven't tested it yet but I'm certain that the boat gets better gas mileage when it's loaded down with the new prop.

I just put a nice 13x13 on ebay. I think it was the original that came with the 2000 Outback. Auction started at 9.99. Could make someone a great spare.My Mom said I'm not allowed to get wet!
