boat year? model? motor? ballast? what do you use it for? Skiing, surfing, boarding? why a 4 blade over 3? what do you have currently? why do you need a new prop?

Yes, absolutely, go for it. You deserve it, you have earned it, and no one should deny you!

I have a 14.25x14.5 OJ on my 05 X2 MCX... and i absolutely love it. hope your not planning on going fast... but man does it hit the holeshot hard. feels like i can put an unlimited amount of ballast in there and it will still get on plane (within reason... anyway)

you have an L-18 in that X2, right? :-P

I have the OJ 475 Fusion (14.25 X 14.5 LC 1 1/8") on my '03 X2 MCX. I have not had a chance to run the boat with it yet, but plan to do so in the next few months. Talk with Eric @ OJ Props and he will take care of you.

@Jason99T/A, did you damage the prop shaft on your boat and have it replaced? Your boat should have a spline shaft, in which case it would take the 477.

CoyB, if you're running ballast in the boat and only using it for wakeboarding and wakesurfing you'll want to look at the OJ 477 (http://www.wakeprops.com/oj-477-propeller.html), which is a 14.25" x 14.5" "Power Prop" designed specifically for heavily weighted boats.
