    Default ACME 1161 vs OJ 466

    Changed my OJ for an Acme today. The acme gave me 4 more mph which is what I was looking for. It seems just as beefy as the OJ. It appears to be a little more quieter and the wake seems not as steep or as big. I was really looking for more top end for barefooting so I am pleased. I will update riding behind in a few weeks.

    Sorry, I have not been out yet since changing the prop. So I can't give any feedback as to surfing or riding. I bought it specifically for more top end for barefooting which I know it accomplished. It should give better cruising but I do have a feeling that it will be a bit more sluggish getting top 10 mph for surfing when loaded with 1500 lbs of ballast in the boat. Should have some info after this weekend I hope.

    funny my stock prop the 13.7 by 17.5 hits 47 wot and puts down a nice slalom wake. so far i haven't noticed it being real sluggish wihile surfing sluggish and we don't load it up while boarding yet. but i read eveything on here and the th stock prop is probally holding back the boat.

    wish that prop test info was not deleted, Al did a great job with his test but there we a few others on the original test

    If your hitting 47 with the stock prop I bet you will see little diff with this prop. I'm comparing it to the wakeboard prop 466. From other postings It looks like your prop is performing well esp if that's 47mph on gps

    In my testing, the top speed was the same between the 537 and the stock 13.7x17.5, with much improved holeshot so you will get similar results with the 1161. 47 mph seems fast though, even for the stock prop.

    47 was right after my break in period and first oil change. i guess i will try her again this week. my speedo is now gps calibrated. we will see.
