    Ya it is tough when they call the 15.5x18 a “Speed/Surf” prop. Theoretically it would be a sweet prop if it could hold surf speed when slammed as it would reduce RPMs. I have the ACME 15.5 x 15 (or 15.5 can’t remember) as my back up but I plan to switch it next weekend as I want to see how it compares the OJ 15.5x16.5

    I questioned them really heavily on it but they swear they tested all factory prop options and this one is the best for the Makai with the 400 motor across the board. Obviously, I have no idea. But they claim it gets on plane better and better surf rpm's with some sacrifice in top-end speed.

    This is what the dealer claims to be true. I'll report back after some testing, but maybe hard with no comparison?

    You will find out when you have a big crew and 1000# lead, fully slammed.

    If you can or can’t hit surf speed will tell you how good that prop works.

    I changed mine to the 15.5x15 this spring because of the added weight. That speed/surf prop felt like it was making the engine work incredibly hard. I haven't gotten out on the water with the new prop yet but I'll let you know what I think after I get some time with it.

    I confirmed my back up is the ACME 2847 15.5x15 so we will see how it compares next weekend.

    So the unveiling of Vador is today right? are we going to get any pictures? This boat is going to be sweet!

    Technically it's arriving at the dealer today but then it's getting tinted, surf pipe install etc. so I won't lay eyes on it until mid-next week

    I like the vador name, or batmobile, or something...

    Will be interesting to see what the 15.5x18 prop does. Ours has a 15.5x16.5 does excellent surfing, we run 400# lead and 5-10 adults on a good weekend.
