    Jake,

    I guess I missed the point of your post, but I need a new prop, and since I got the big brown truck delivering the boxes-O-ballast to my house, I figured while Christmas is here, they might as well throw in a prop as my current one looks like the guy before me slapped the curb quite a few times with the prop.

    After reading this thread, I was just wondering if I should order a 1433 or a 1617 for my little ol yellow tow boat.

    Eric.

    Sorry, I really like the pitch of the 1617 and my number two choice is 1847, number three a tie between 1433 & 1235. So will I buy a 1617, zziiiippp??

    You should call about your particular boat to be certain, imo

    Beat, might try to snag dustys opinion before a switch. He has 1617 and i have 1433. I haven't driven his since the switch.

    I did call and I was told "I would suggest using something like the Acme 1433 prop which will give you a lot more low end hole shot. "

    Good news is, my current prop is so dinged up (bent) that the cardboard box should give better results.

    Eric.

    Hmmm. Recent? From my understanding the 1617 is a recent improvement on the 1433/1235.

    You will be good either way. The 1433 was a solid upgrade from factory upgrade oj wake prop door me.

    It was today, of course with the caveat of "I would suggest using something like...."

    And the 1617 is "like" the 1433. :banghead:

    I can't remember diameter but think it is posted several post up. (im on phone and can't see). Consensus seems to be 1617 is now best performance. 1433 is for clearance (if indeed 1617 is larger).

    Edit: I'm not sure we have seen a 1617 and 1235/1433 direct comparison?
