ACME 911 3 Blade 13" x 10.5" Propeller
The ACME 911 3 Blade Propeller is nothing like 3 blade propellers of the past. Prior to 1999, wakeboard and ski 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 line.
All this changed when ACME revolutionized the manufacturing process by implementing CNC machining. Precision machining of its wakeboard and waterski boat propellers allows ACME to hold tolerances and achieve accuracies never before seen in the propeller industry. Which results in larger surface area props that are more efficient and perfectly balanced for silky smooth operation.
What does that mean for you? The new ACME 3 blade propellers are now capable of providing you with the same holeshot and top end performance that many 4 blade propellers deliver. Whether you want to make your old ski boat feel like new or improve the performance of your new wakeboard boat, the ACME 911 3 Blade Propeller will get the job done.
Was very skeptical about going from my OJ 4-blade to this 3-blade on my 1998 Tige PRE 2200 but followed the prop selection guide and trusted Wakemakers.com recommendation. I don't perceive any loss in pull out of the hole or at surf speed. Consistent pull at wakeboard speed and I gained about 6 - 8 mph at the top end. NICE!
Two thumbs up!
We put this on our Tige 22i at the recommendation of the Wakemakers staff, and we are glad we did! We use our boat for heavy pulling all summer (8 Man water sled etc.) and this prop was great. We know this because we hit a rock with it and had to go back to a 525 while waiting for a new 911 to ship and my driver noticed a huge decline in performance with that more moderate prop. So, great recommendation, great product, great price, great shipping - what's not to like?
lower pitch pulls way harder
No more full throttle when sacked out
I'm new to boating and I shopped for a new prop based on price and suggestions from the internet. The ACME 911 prop replaced the stock prop on my Sanger V230 and WOW, what a difference! I'm not only able to pop right out of the water with this prop, but the whole boat sounds and feels different now. There is a huge difference in the low end torque and I can pop surfers out of the water like it was nothing. The torque is smooth and I can't really tell if I've lost anything off my top end like the reviews say. I don't take my RPMs much over 3500 and I have instant power all through the range. Wakemakers has the best price that I can find through Google shopping and the shipping was fast! I had my prop in 2 days just before the holiday and I was back in business.
