The ACME 542 3 Blade Propeller is designed specifically for waterski and wakeboard boats to offer improved acceleration, speed holding pulling power and fuel economy.
The ACME 542 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 542 3 Blade Propeller will get the job done.

Great prop, no vibrations
I used this to replace the damaged factory prop on my 23' Penn Yan Avenger. I am happy with it, great prop for the price. No vibrations, better holeshot, same Top end. Factory prop was a 13x11. Free shipping was great, I had it in Detroit in three days.
