    The ski wake on the 3-blade 1253 was considerably better than the OJ 4-blade, IMHO..

    The 1171 is a good prop but it puts me closer to the stock prop numbers and higher rpms at cruising a slalom speeds. Based on this testing I plan to keep the Acme 1253 and send back the Acme 1171 unless someone wants to buy it. The 1281 will be my backup and I will also sell off the OJ 13x12.

    ....
    Kind of dumb question but did you ski behind each prop also? Wondering if there was wake difference between them.

      Not a dumb question at all but a very important thing to do. The only one I didn’t ski was the Acme 1171 due to time circumstances. The biggest difference, as noted, was the 4 blade felt bigger/taller than the others.
      If its not a competition ski boat, its always second best.

            • Planning on removing the bullseye this offseason. Going to have Jaw's restore the flake to remove any ghosting. I want to order the new decals during Domed Numbers Black Friday sale. Anyone got pics with no bullseye and just "Mastercraft"? I know JohnE did at least one of his like this. Need to figure out what size to order decals, original size or slightly larger?

                  I like Rob's graphics w/ the stars and two lines...almost like a throwback nod to the stars and stripes and 19 skiers.

                    • Double D That is one sweet looking sled... The stars are sharp but I'm leaning the classic Mastercraft only.

                      Need JohnE to post a pic of his old setups.

                        I had the '05 Tournament Team "Mastercraft" installed on my '09 before I took delivery. I had planned to do it on my '08, but I only kept that boat 5 months thanks to fanfare. I'll post a pic when I get to my home computer.

                        • I did this on my X14v before selling, and the photos were on the forum before the upgrade. If I can find them anywhere else, I will repost.

                              • That was the pic I was thinking off. Really like that look. Those side decals are definitely larger than stock.

                                Placed my order with Domed Numbers today. Went with stock size (6") side decal. Really hoping Jaw's can bring the flake back to life and get the look above!
