Find the Perfect Prop for Your Tige Boat

Tige has made a mark on the wake industry since it’s conception in the 1990’s. Do not settle for ‘second-best’ when choosing a wakeboard or wakesurfing boat. Tige offers a ton of options to enhance the experience behind the boat. We have found that a wakeboard or wakesurf specific propeller is not one of them. Lean on us to help you find the best Tige prop in order to unleash the ultimate performance.
Tigé Propeller & V-Drive Explanation:
Early model Tige’ wakeboard boats were shipped with a variety of transmission / V-Drive combinations. Luckily they are easy to distinguish based on their color and the fact that the gear ratio is stamped right on the side. The Walter Gear Drive RV-26D has a 1.46:1 gear ratio and is painted BLUE. The factory prop for this gear reduction is a 14″ x 18″ 4 blade. The PCM V-drive has a 1:1 gear ratio and is painted BLACK. The factory prop for this gear ratio is a 13″ x 13″ 4 blade. We now suggest running a 3 blade prop on these boats for better efficiency. (Tige’ has also used a PCM 1.48:1 gear ratio V-Drive in some newer boats which is also painted black).

WaterSki / Barefoot

If you want the best performance at the top end of the speed spectrum, at the trade-off of holeshot and acceleration, this prop will be your best choice. Keep in mind that watersports boats have drag limited hulls, so they will never be that fast. In most cases, 40-45MPH is the top speed you can expect to see, even with a prop that is designed to generate the most velocity.

Recreational / Everything

This is the closest replacement for the propeller that came on your boat from the factory. In many cases this will be the exact model that came stock, and in other situations, particularly with somewhat older boats, this is the prop we've selected that most closely matches the performance of the propeller that originally came with your boat. In these cases you can expect a noticeable improvement in performance as propeller technology has changed significantly in recent years.
If you run a modest amount of ballast in your boat (less than 1,000 pounds) or if you boat at high altitudes this prop will give you the best combination of low end pulling power and top end performance.

Wakeboard / WakeSurf

If you run a high amount of ballast in your boat (between 1,000 and 3,000 pounds) or if you run a medium amount of ballast in your boat (between 1,000 and 2,000 pounds) and you boat at high altitudes our Plus 2 upgrade option will improve your boat's low end pulling power for easy acceleration, speed holding and efficiently, without completely compromising the top end speed of the boat. This would be the option to select if you primarily use the boat for wakesurfing and wakeboarding, but still need some top end speed.

High Elevation / Heavily Weighted

Our Plus 3 upgrade offers the maximum improvement in low speed acceleration and speed holding making this the ideal "Power Prop" for wakesurfing and wakeboarding in heavily loaded boat (more than 3,000 pounds of ballast), when top speed is of no concern.
