    Default Which prop for LSV?

    I'm just wondering what props other LSV owners are running? It is my understanding that SC recommends the acme 537 prop for the LSV due to a "prop hum" created if the prop on the LSV exceeds a certain diameter. I am currently using the acme 537 and my concern is hole shot, which I think could be better. My hole shot is only an issue when ballast is full (I only have stock ballast). I also have the 409 engine, so I am pretty surprised that the boat is working like it is to get on plane with full ballast. The boat seems to run great once out of the hole. Maybe I'm just overthinking this one, but any prop suggestions would be appreciated. Also curios to here what others with lsv hull are using. Thanks.

    I run the 1617 and love it, although I run more than the stock ballast.

    Im running a acme 1273 which is a 14.5x14.25p .150 cup prop with ibs amd upgraded 1100 lockers on my 2014 lsv. The boat came new with 537 on it and it made a big difference. We still run 39.8 by gps on top end . Couldnt be happier. We mainly surf and have the 330 assault engine.

    Thanks for the responses has anybody with a larger diameter (14") prop experienced a prop hum? I'm not sure if I'm willing to tolerate that.

    I only had hum with my stock OJ. This is much quieter, and no vibrations like the OJ.

    I've got the 1617 and love it too. Lots of extra ballast on our boat.

    My understanding is ojs hum acmes dont. My 14.5 dia is like butter and as far as clearance issue's with the trailer the 1235 acme is a factory option prop if it fits the trailer it clears the 1235 is 14.5 also.

    We run the 1433 and have between 2000-2500 lbs ballast for wake boarding plus passengers. Stock prop couldn't get the job done but this gets us out of the hole and on plane pretty quickly.

    grab any of the 14x14 variants and you will be amazed at the difference out of the hole. it was night and day on my supra swapping a 13x17 for a 14x14. I believe I ended up with the 1235. wish I would have taken that prop off and kept it for the new boat.. as mentioned make sure you have the proper clearance with the trailer prop guard before you put it on.. if you are going to upgrade ballast in the future to surf upgrading will be the best $$ you spend on the boat.
    acme will not hum. there are MANY threads discussing the issues of oj props and the hum that they have. my original 13x17 was oj and had the hum. switched to acme and never looked back. I know that oj was on here for a while trying to defend the props but don't remember the outcome..
