Take the guess work out of buying a propeller for your Malibu boat with our our Malibu Propeller Application Guide. Our exclusive Malibu Prop Finder guide is the latest in a series of guides targeting all of the major boat manufacturers in the water sports industry.
When asked about the unique application guides WakePROPS has developed, co-founder Jason Craveiro had the following to say:
"When we started WakePROPS.com we realized there was a serious lack of information available regarding which propeller is right for a given application. We want to make it easy for our customers to find the best prop based on how they use their boat, so in additional the safety and convenience of having a back up prop, they also gain a performance increase at the same time. Our Prop Finder Guides are the culmination of years of research and countless hours reviewing the specifications and performance of waterski and wakeboard boats. The result is a simple to follow guide for each individual model of boat that makes it easy to select the perfect propeller."
Of course every purchase is also backed up by our exclusive 30-day performance guarantee, which allows you to try any propeller you purchase from us on your actual boat, with no risk. Feel free to contact us by email, or give us a call at 888-543-8846 for more information.

One of the most common questions we're asked is what is the difference between a 3 blade and 4 blade propeller, and which one is right for me. Outside of the specific diameter, pitch and cup of a propeller, this is definitely the most common question, and the first one that we're asked as customers begin the prop buying process.
Theoretically, a 3-blade propeller should always be more efficient than a 4-blade. However, in the past, two big issues have prevented the 3-blade from taking the lead in popularity. The first was a lack of manufacturing precision, which commonly caused 3-blades to vibrate more than 4-blades. When significant dimensional variation exists in a propeller, vibration is generally more noticeable in a propeller with fewer blades. The second reason for the 3-blade disfavor was an almost certain loss of blade area in the transition from four blades to three. Consequently, even though top-end gains were achieved, performance expectations on the low-end were diminished.
Through the implementation of precision manufacturing and design improvements, Acme Propellers are giving the 3-blade the reputation it deserves. Acme is consistently holding tolerances never before achieved in propeller production. This accuracy makes the Acme 3-blade incredibly smooth. In addition, the blade area of the Acme 3-blade has been expanded to equal that of the Acme 4-blade. The translation? The Acme 3-blade has raised the performance bar. From an awesome hole-shot to an unmatched top end, and all the smoothness throughout, the Acme 3-blade leaves nothing to be desired. We believe it has an edge that everyone will appreciate. On the other hand, please do not mistake our excitement as a lack of appreciation for the Acme 4-blade, a proven winner.
It should be noted that this choice might still be mildly influenced by application, because it is possible that the most perceptive users might be able to detect slight differences that cause them to prefer one prop over the other. Even still, the overall performance of either Acme Propeller is paramount, and is that from which dreams are made.wakeboard boat prop finder tool help you figure it out.
