Just bought a used 2002 prostar 205v and we are loving it. For some reason though the previous owner of this boat had upgraded the prop to a OJ XMP but put a 14 X 20. First thing I noticed was at WOT I am only turning 4K RPM's. Then I noticed when the boat is loaded with people and pulling up a slalom skier, it's a tough pull. We do everything from barefooting to wake surfing so am looking for a very versital prop. Something that is not going to over rev the engine but something that will pull skiers up easier.

Eric will be along shortly, I imagine, or give him a call:
Eric @ OJ PROPS - 800-359-9730

He's been extremely helpful here with everyone. Tell him what you've got engine/transmission wise, and what you want to do ("I only wakeboard, and I have 3000 pounds of ballast", "I'm a barefooter", "I do a little bit of everything", "I want to go as fast as possible", "I'm willing to lose a couple mph at the top end to improve the holeshot"), and he'll have a perfect suggestion or two for you. Even offers a no-strings-attached try it before you buy it program!

What motor is in the boat? When you wakesurf are you adding any ballast? Has the 14 X 20 ever been repaired?

I have the 310HP engine. I have not yet added any ballast. Just a few friends. The existing prop is still like new.

If you do not plan on adding any ballast I would suggest our 13.7 X 17.5 LC 1 1/8" XMP 4-blade, part number 475.
