ACME 2315 4 Blade 15" x 12" Propeller
The ACME 2315 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 2315 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.
I have 3200lbs of ballast in my '13 Malibu VLX and the stock acme 1235prop would not get the boat on plane. This prop was recommended by a friend and it was a total game changer! You will lose some top end speed, but we mainly surf so we dont care much about the top end. It gives the boat alot of low end grunt to get on plane, holds speed well, and is more fuel efficient. Wakemakers has the best deals on props and their customer service is top notch.
Tug Boat Prop
This is a great prop if you're purely looking to do heavy weight surfing and wakeboarding. You will lose 3-4 mph off of your top end (we lost 4 from our 1235) but your hole-shot and surfing will be much more impressive and efficient. This is a slightly larger prop (15x12) in diameter than our old one so it was a little bit noisier as well, but not in a bad way, you could just hear it a small amount. WakeMakers had the best price for this out of anywhere and shipped extremely fast for standard shipping. Great CS when I accidentally ordered the wrong one also.
Prop helped with a heavilly weighted boat..my ols 1235 kept washing out when I loaded ballast...this prop corrected issue!
