Hi all, did a search and didnt find anything specifically related to this...
I have the 2007 X2, mainly wakeboard use also have the full fly high ballast (rear lockers & bow sac), currently run a OJ 14.25 x 14.75 V prop. Did damage to the prop over the weekend (no damage to anything else) and will be replacing prop. I have been happy with this prop as with 10 peeps and ballast, gets out of the hole easily.
Have contacted Eric @ OJ some time ago making inquiries, he has recommended a 14.25 X 14 LC Splined 4-blade as my current spec is not manufactured any longer. I am happy to go with his suggestion but seeking input from others as to what they have found ideal for loading a pickle fork X2.
How will the 14.25 X 14 LC perform against my current 14.25 x 14.75 V?
Whilst I would like to improve fuel economy (if possible) and get a couple of mph more at full throttle, although these 2 needs are not top of list, but seeing that I will be buying a new prop, thought I'd see if this is possible

thanks for input

I just got the ACME 1479 and I gained 3mph on the top end with no rpm loss.. Is that possible? I have a 2007 X2 with the MCX and am at sea level. I was hitting 5400-5500 rpm's WOT, with the ACME I hit 5500rpm and now my top speed is 42mph +- vs 38-39mph with the OJ at the same RPM, wierd. have not gone behind the boat yet. VERY different shape though. I cannot say enougjh good stuff about this PROP. I've used it and the wake is good too. For reference I had an OJ 14.25X14.5 prop for comparison

Hey Ray, how bad is it? You can most likely get it repaired for about $150. Lots cheaper than getting a new one.

I have the 14.25x 14.50 and fairly pleased w it but wanted to try a prop that would be more versatile so OJ recommended the 14.75 x 15.50 to gain some mph to rpm ratio. We slalom at 30 mph and the 14.25 rpm hits 3500 and new prop hit 3300 at 30.

This is the stock prop on the X2 - 14.75 X 15.5 and what I run, works great with the boat sacked out. I want to try the 5 blade though. Agree, you should be able to get the old one fixed as long as you are not missing any blades.

Eric @ OJ.... sent two props had them back in 3 days... cost me $180 for both minus shipping. I have a 14.5 x 14.25 for wake surfing and sac'd out boarding. Works great but again, I'm always looking at what is better out there. Would love to try a 5 blade for a few weeks to see if I like it.

further inquiries has me looking at an ACME prop. Im sure there are ACME v OJ pros & cons, but as an option this has been specd as a replacement for my OJ OJ 14.25 x 14.75 V is the ACME ACME 1479 14.5 x 14.25 150 cup. For you prop gurus, any thoughts as I am not wanting better holeshot, but as I said a couple of more mph would be great...not wanting more revs

another ACME option put forward to me is their NEW Acme 2243-15.00X14.25VL4B SPLINE .105 cup four blade nibral propeller.
Does anyone have any reports on this, and can anyone clarify how a bigger diameter v smaller pitch affect performnace

the 15" dia prop may be of benefit from what I've read, will there be any clearance issues with the larger diameter, especially with the trailer clearance loading/unloading?

after many reviews and talking to ppl, I am deciding to go with the ACME 1479, this will give me 3mph more at WOT. And have my damaged prop fixed and keep as a spare, thanks everyone for feedback, and Venetrex for the input on the 1479
