Placed an order yesterday for an OJ Fusion 475 (14.25 X 14.50). Eric @ OJ Props was a huge help in the entire process. We went through a few different prop selections and finally settled on the 475.

Boat is a '03 X-2 (MCX) with 750lb Fly-High sacs in the rear, factory KGB, and a to-be installed Integrated Bow Sac. Can't wait to see what a difference it will make! :D Too bad I need to wait until it warms up a bit....

i had the 14.25 X 14.0 and it was a beast of a prop. changed my 2005 XStar with MCX dramatically. the boat originally had the 13.7 x 17 oj. i lost some top end and burned a little more gas but what a difference it made in performance, hole-shot, helping the perfect pass hold the speed, and putting the brakes on when docking or loading on the trailer.

My boat currently has the 14x18 stock prop. Should be a nice difference!

Good deal! I'm sure you will like it. If you are not 100% happy, Eric will always do his best to get you there.

Nice, you'll definitely appreciate the upgrade. Should have let me know you needed one though, I'm sure we could have worked out a package deal with the Integrated Bow Sac. ;)

Great prop, I use that same size on my MCX X-star when I really load it down.

(BTW, my wife had an '80 T/A TURBO!)

Jason, do you fill the two rear 750's completely full? If so, I can tell you that the integrated sac alone won't be enough in the front (boat will still drive fine and all, but the wake won't be at it's full potential). That boat likes about a 50/50 or 60/40, rear:front ratio. I assume that your integrated sac would be under the bow seats, so you're only going to get 350 lbs out of it. If you have people sitting up front then you should be fine, but if not, you're better off going with the 1100 pound bow triangle.

Personally, I have both the integrated sac and the bow triangle, but I put another 800 on the floor in the rear, along with 750 on each side of engine.

Just something to think about before putting in the work of installing an integrated sac.

Thanks. I only had the 750s in the rear for one trip last year. Bought them at the end of the season. I filled them up about 75% full, but you can tell the boat needs a bunch more weight in the front. I was thinking of going with the IBS and adding some POP Products lead bags to the front as well when we do not ride with a bunch of people. Or simply going with all POP products up front to maximize storage area in the front.

Looking forward to getting the boat back out next season!

I have the same prop on my 05 X2... you'll love it.

Weight setup sounds about right, i load the rear 750s full with the 500 KGB + 300 walkway + 200 lbs of lead + always 1 person up there. Not worried about running the lead in the front, even unloaded boat could use a little more weight up there while cruisin
