ACME 2079 4 Blade 14.5" x 12" Propeller
The ACME 2079 4 Blade Propeller offers more surface area than comparable 3 blade propellers which means a more efficient transmission of power, higher fuel economy, and more consistent speeds. Thanks to ACME’s continued devotion to push the ski and wakeboard boat propeller industry to new heights inboard props are helping ski and wakeboard boats achieve performances never before seen.
Prior to 1999, ski and wakeboard boat propellers were cast from molds, a process that offered little precision and had severe limitations for the size and shape of the blades. The result was inefficient props with small blade surface area and poor balance which caused vibration in the boat drive train. However, all that changed when ACME introduced CNC machining to the inboard propeller industry. By precision machining its waterski and wakeboard boat propellers ACME is now able to hold tolerances and achieve accuracies never before seen in the inboard propeller industry.
What does that mean for you? The ACME 2079 4 Blade Propeller will perform up to and surpass the standards you expect from the moment you pull it out of the box and put it on your boat.
Great prop for running heavy weight
I was having trouble getting my boat to plane for wakeboarding. I upgraded to the 2079 and it planes really well now when I have heavy weight on. The description describes sacrificing top speed but it is barely noticeable. I went from a top speed of 40mph to 37mph. I also pull tubers in the low to mid 20s and I noticed no difference in the rpm at this speed range. I am REALLY happy with this prop and it's a must have if you are running big weight with a 350 motor.

My other prop was damaged so I decided to get one with more torque. This is a quality made prop. Well balanced. I love the extra torque. It has also made idle speed slower and much easier to take up tension on the rope for new surfers
This was just what we needed to get us up on plane quicker. It used to take us a good 30-40 seconds. Now it takes us less than 10 Seconds.
We run a 2012 MB Sports F21 Tomcat boat with 3100 Lbs of ballast and this is perfect now!
