  • Ok prop.

    I have an 85 stars and stripes with the powerslot transmission. Would this prop make a difference in my performance over the 3 blade that is on it now?

          Yes, it will change the operational characteristics of the boat. It will do all of these things, some desireable and others may not: Lower engine rpm at target speeds by about 200 rpm, should be smoother than 3 blade, increase in hole shot performance, may increase top speed, change the size of the bump in back (where the wakes meet at speed).

          For $100, unless it's damaged you can't go wrong.

            Thank you. I just need to verify I have a keyed shaft.

                Lower engine rpm at target speeds by about 200 rpm probably , should be smoother than 3 blade probably , increase in hole shot performance probably not, hole shot will be lessened because of greater pitch, may increase top speed maybe, but generally speaking 3 blade props are faster than 4 blades

                      Ya that was my concern in the photo. Hard to tell unless you can verify what side of the hub you are looking at

                        I know that you've already determined that you can't use the prop, but I contacted OJ the first time that I went to a 4 blade. My 87 Prostar w/powerslot had the same 14X18, 3 blade prop, and OJ sold me a 13.7 X 17, 4 blade. I got a quicker, smoother hole shot and I gained 1-2 mph on the top end. I did the exact same prop change on my 95 Maristar with the same results.
                        The 4 blade prop also holds speed better and has a quicker response to the throttle.

                        The guys at OJ were a great help with selecting the right prop for the job.

                          Any chance the seller is located in VA?
