I have a 13.5 x 17.5 ACME prop for sale that I used on my 2002 X-star. I found it was a great blend between hole shot and top end. I think you'd like it.

I have one, but keeping it as a spare. Check out ski-it-again.com. There's usually one for sale. Pretty common and cheap to buy because so many people upgrade to a prop with better hole shot.

I've got one that needs repair I'd sell cheap. Bent the tips of two blades at the ramp this summer. Since I was planning on upgrading my prop over the winter, I just went ahead and bought a 1479 instead of fixing it and buying a new one later.

$50. I can send pics if you'd like.

Regards,
Jason

how's the 1479 performing for you, what did you replace it from? I have just fitted the ACME 1479, we are into our summer now and will be trying it out next few days...:D

I stepped up from the 13.7x17 when I upped the rear ballast to 750s and added the bow sac. The stock prop would eventually get on plane, but would take forever. Huge difference with the 1479. If the boat isn't loaded down it is way overkill, but with the ballast full and 2-3 people in the boat, it works out almost perfect (need a bit more bow ballast). If you up it to 5+ passengers, plus full ballast, I'd bet the 1285 would be the way to go (1479 still gets on plane, but starts to show familair signs of slow to plane as the stock prop did).
