Last season I noticed that my 2010 x14V (MCX 350) had less jam out of the hole than my 08 x14. I am thinking about changing props. Any ideas on what I should goto (not sure what the stock one is)?
thanks

What prop are you currently running? I know that the prop the boat is tournament certified to use is the and OJ 13.7 X 17.5

Stock prop is the OJ 456 (http://www.wakeprops.com/oj-456-propeller.html) as MIskier mentioned. If you wanted to upgrade to something with a little more acceleration, you'd want to look at the OJ 446 (http://www.wakeprops.com/oj-446-propeller.html), which is a 13.7" x 15.5" 4 blade. You'll lose a couple of MPH off the top end, but the low speed performance will benefit greatly.

Or get away from OJ and purchase an ACME prop. Our dealership will not sell anything but if someone is replacing the original prop. I will have to check and see what would be a good replacement for you.

.....you should go back to an X-14. Your new boat has the engine in the wrong place! ;)

Sounds like your dealership only carries ACME props and orders replacement OJ's through Mastercraft to me.

Both companies make a great product, but each one has advantages in certain situations, which is why working with a company that just sells props and carries both brands will typically give you better performance.

In this case, OJ has worked very closely to fine tune their props for Mastercraft, so you really would be giving up some performance if you went to an ACME. Of course you can do that, and the ACME 845 (http://www.wakeprops.com/acme-845-propeller.html) would be the closest application to the OJ 446.

Yes it did! But this new one is so great for all around use and it still skis great at 34mph and 15 off.

Thanks. Is that the 3 or 4 blade model? Also is that the new xmp edge prop that oj has out?
